Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the distribution of personnel among the Garda Regions, Divisions, and Districts. Garda management keep this distribution under continuing review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the best possible use is made of these resources.
I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that the personnel strength of Galway Garda Division on 30 April 2015 the latest date for which figures are readily available was 563. There are also 55 Garda Reserves and 44 Civilians attached to Galway Garda Division. The personnel strength and opening hours of Salthill and Clifden Garda Districts on 30 April 2015 the latest date for which figures are readily available are as set out in the following table.
