Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): As the Deputy will appreciate, under the Garda Síochána Act 2005, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the general management and administration of Garda business, which includes the deployment of members of An Garda Síochána throughout the State. As Minister, I have no role in this independent function.
As of 31 May 2021 there were 328 Gardaí assigned to the Wexford Division, which represents an increase of 20% since 2011 when there were 273 Garda members assigned to the Division. These Garda members are supported by 44 Garda staff.
