162. Deputy Alan Kelly asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the allocation of gardaí to Nenagh divisional district and the rank of each in 2016, 2017 and to date in 2018; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [40724/18]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy will appreciate, it is the Garda Commissioner who is responsible for the distribution of resources, including personnel, among the various Garda Divisions and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter. Garda management keeps this distribution of resources under continual review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the optimum use is made of these resources.
The information requested by the Deputy as provided by the Garda Commissioner from 2016 is available on my Department’s website through the following link.
