Written answers (Question to Justice)

There has been an unprecedented level of investment in Garda resources across the State in recent years. The allocation to An Garda Síochána for 2019 amounts to €1.76 billion and significant capital investment is also being made in An Garda Síochána including €342 million being invested in Garda ICT infrastructure between 2016 and 2021 and €46 million for investment in the Garda fleet.

The Deputy will appreciate that the Garda Commissioner is primarily responsible for the effective and efficient use of resources available to An Garda Síochána. This includes responsibility for matters including the opening hours of Garda stations and the allocation of personnel.  As Minister, I have no role in such matters.  I am assured, however, that Garda management keeps the distribution of resources under continual review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure their optimum use.

I am informed by the Garda authorities that the following spreadsheet outlines the weekly opening hours of each Garda station in the Limerick Division, as requested by the Deputy.  It may be noted that where the term 'roster dependent' appears in the spreadsheet, this means that the opening hours identified are dependent on the availability of staff in any particular roster period.

Finally, I would point out that as with all Garda stations which are not open to the public on a full-time basis, I am informed by the Garda authorities that telephone calls to a station during periods of closure are automatically routed to the nearest 24-hour station in the District.  In cases of emergency, any person can also call the 999 or 112 emergency service for an urgent Garda response.
