508. Deputy Patrick O'Donovan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality when a new superintendent will be appointed to Bruff Garda station, County Limerick. [25066/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy will appreciate, the distribution of personnel is a matter for the Garda Commissioner and I, as Minister have no direct role in the matter. I am assured by the Commissioner that Garda personnel assigned throughout the country, together with overall policing arrangements and operational strategies, are continually monitored and reviewed. Such monitoring ensures that optimum use is made of Garda Resources and the best possible Garda service is provided to the general public.
I am informed by the Commissioner that Bruff Garda District forms part of the Limerick Division and that a Superintendent will be assigned to the District on 14 June 2018.
