[46535/09]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Deputy Dermot Ahern): Information on Dermot Ahern  Zoom on Dermot Ahern  I am informed by the Garda authorities that there is a total 57 vehicles (both marked and unmarked), comprising cars, vans and motorcycles allocated to Kildare Garda Division. The number of vehicles assigned to each station is set-out in the table below.

While these vehicles are primarily utilised by personnel at the Garda Station to which they are allocated, such vehicles are District and Divisional resources and when deemed necessary by local Garda Management can be reallocated to meet varying operational requirements. Accordingly it is not possible to provide a precise breakdown of the number of vehicles available on a 24 hour basis in the catchment area of each station concerned.
