Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the distribution of personnel, including Garda reservists, among the Garda Regions, Divisions, and Districts. Garda management keep this distribution under continuing review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the best possible use is made of these resources.

However, I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that the number of Garda reservists attached to each Garda District in the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) on 30 April 2014, the latest date for which figures are readily available, was as set out in the following table:
