Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): The Deputy will be aware that the Commissioner, in consultation with his senior management team, is responsible for the detailed allocation of resources, including personnel, throughout the organisation. This allocation of resources is constantly monitored in the context of crime trends, policing needs and other operational strategies in place on a District, Divisional and Regional level to ensure optimum use is made of Garda resources and the best possible Garda service is provided to the public.
The Garda Commissioner has informed me that the personnel strength of Sundrive Garda Station on 31 December 2010, 2011 and on 31 January 2012 (the latest date for which figures are readily available) was 77, 71, and 70 respectively and that 7 Garda Reserves are also presently assigned there.
