At 31 August 2008, there were 254 attested Reserve Gardaí and 121 Reserve trainees nationally. There are two Reserve Gardaí in the Kerry Division, both of whom are assigned to Tralee Garda District. To date, no reserve members have been assigned to Listowel. Following a recent marketing campaign in the Kerry Division, a number of applications to join the Garda Reserve have been received by the Public Appointments Service.
