Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the management and administration of Garda business under Section 26 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 (as amended). As Minister, I play no role in these independent functions. 

For the Deputy's information, and in the interest of transparency, most of the information sought by the Deputy is made publicly available by both my Department and An Garda Síochána in tabular form and updated monthly. 

Information on numbers of Garda members, by Division, District and Station, can be found at the following link on my Department's website:

Information on Garda Staff numbers is available at the following link:

Information related to the Garda fleet can be found at:

I have contacted An Garda Síochána regarding the number of Garda stations in each year from 2017 to date, however, this information was not available in time. I will write to the Deputy separately once this information is to hand.
