Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I propose to take Questions Nos. 450 to 452, inclusive, 454 to 456, inclusive, 460 and 461 together.
As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the distribution of personnel and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter. Garda management keeps this distribution under review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities to ensure optimum use is made of the resources.
The Garda strength of each Garda Division by District, Station and Rank from 2009 to 30 November 2018, the latest date for which figures are currently available, as provided by the Garda Commissioner are available on my Department’s website through the following link:
