Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

The information requested in respect of civil servants by division and station serving as civilians in Garda stations as at 31 December 2003 is set out in the following table.

In October, 2001 the Government approved the report on civilianisation in the Garda Síochána which recommended a programme of civilianisation to allow for the release of Garda members to operational policing. In this context, my Department is currently reviewing these figures in conjunction with the Department of Finance and Garda management. The civilianisation report also provides for the transfer of finance functions from the Garda district clerks to civilians, and the subsequent upgrading of the new civilian role to staff officer. A competition is currently under way to fill these posts.
