Question 539: To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of gardaí who have been allocated to Ballyfermot, Dublin Metropolitan Region, in 2010, 2011 and 2012. [9778/12]
Alan Shatter (Minister, Department of Justice, Equality and Defence; Dublin South, Fine Gael)
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 and I have no function in that process.
Notwithstanding this, I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that the personnel strength of Ballyfermot Garda Station on 31 December 2010, 2011 and on 31 January 2012, the latest date for which figures are readily available, was 99, 96 and 97 respectively.
