Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware, under the Garda Síochána Act 2005, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the management and administration of An Garda Síochána, including Garda training matters. I, as Minister, have no role in such matters.

I have been provided with the figures in the table below by the Garda authorities, which outlines the number of Gardaí who completed the advanced motorcycle course in 2020 and to date in 2021. I have also included the pre-pandemic figure for 2019 for the Deputy's information. I am informed by the Garda authorities that the course is ten days in duration.
