Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 380 to 395, inclusive, together.

As the Deputy will be aware, An Garda Síochána have put a number of organisational measures in place to address and improve their response to domestic abuse such as: the Domestic Abuse Intervention Policy, the appointment of Divisional Inspectors, the establishment of the National Protective Services Bureau and Divisional Protective Services Units and various awareness raising initiatives.

Furthermore, since February 2018, a key improvement has been made in relation to data available from the PULSE system which now supports the recording of domestic violence as a modus operandi feature.

With regard to the specific information sought by the Deputy, I have requested a report from the Garda authorities and I will contact the Deputy directly once the information is to hand.
