Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I propose to take Questions Nos. 25, 27, 29, 30, 33, 36, 37, 42, 46, 48, 49, 51 and 55 together.
As the Deputies will appreciate, it is the Garda Commissioner who is responsible for the distribution of resources, including personnel, among the various Garda Divisions and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter. Garda management keeps this distribution of resources under continual review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the optimum use is made of these resources.
The information requested by the Deputy as provided by the Garda Commissioner is available on my Department’s website through the following link:
