Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice and Equality)

The provision and allocation of Garda vehicles is a matter for the Garda Commissioner in the context of his identified policing priorities. At Divisional level responsibility for the efficient deployment of Garda vehicles is assigned to the Divisional Officer, who may allocate vehicles between Districts and stations in the light of operational requirements.

I am informed by the Garda authorities that, on the basis of the information readily available, the number of Garda vehicles assigned to the Districts in the Dublin Region on 1st July 2012 was as set out in the table below:
