I am informed by the Garda Commissioner that as of 30 June 2019, there were 55 Garda Staff assigned to the DMR South Central Division. As of 31 May 2019, there were 2,675 Garda Staff employed by An Garda Síochána undertaking a range of administrative and technical duties across the organisation.

More generally, the Deputy will be aware, the Government's vision is for a Garda workforce of 21,000 personnel by 2021 to include 15,000 Garda members and 4,000 Garda Staff. The projected 4,000 Garda Staff represents a medium-term target of 20% of the Garda full-time workforce comprised of civilians.

The continued growth of civilianisation within An Garda Síochána is supported by the Report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland. This Report states that civilianisation should be seen as part of the strategic vision for the organisation, building a stronger skill mix and delivering a better service to the public.

I am informed by An Garda Síochána that a class of approximately 100 Garda Reserve recruits commenced training on 23/24 March 2019 at the Garda College, Templemore. This is a positive development and delivers on the target set out under 'A Policing Service for the Future', the implementation plan for the Report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.

An Garda Síochána is currently conducting a strategic review of the Garda Reserve to inform future decisions around the use of the Reserve. This approach is also in line with the recommendation in the Report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland. The Strategy is expected to be concluded shortly and will inform the development of a Reserve recruitment drive by the end of 2019.

As the Deputy will be aware, the Central Statistics Office (CSO), as the national statistical agency, is responsible for the compilation and publication of recorded crime statistics, and the CSO has established a dedicated unit for this purpose.

However, to be of assistance, I have asked the CSO to forward the available statistics directly to the Deputy.
