Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware, under the Garda Síochána Act 2005 (as amended), the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the administration and management of An Garda Síochána, including the purchase and distribution of Garda resources, including Garda vehicles. As Minister, I have no direct role in these matters.

I am advised, however, that Garda management keeps the distribution of resources under continual review to ensure their optimum use in light of identified operational needs and emerging crime trends.

I have been provided with the information contained in the table below by the Garda authorities, outlining that as of 11 March 2022, two vehicles have been allocated to the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) this year with a total of 12 vehicles withdrawn. As outlined in the second table, a total of 65 vehicles were allocated with 44 vehicles withdrawn in 2021.
