Written Answers. - DMA Indictable Offences Statistics.

Ivor Callely

Question:

505 Mr. Callely asked the Minister for Justice the number of reported incidents in each Garda station in the Dublin Metropolitan Area for north central and north east divisions for 1995; if she will give a breakdown of such figures; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [16669/96]

I am informed by the Garda authorities that the number of indictable offences reported in 1995 in each Garda station in DMA North and DMA North Central Divisions are as follows:

Station

Offences against the person

Burglaries etc.

Larcenies etc.

I should add that the trend so far this year is towards a reduction in the number of indictable offences compared to 1995.
