I am informed by the Garda authorities that the four Garda stations listed below currently have a fully commissioned and operational internal audio/visual CCTV system installed in public and custody areas.

No. of cameras
Bridewell Prison
Store Street
Pearse Street

Work in relation to the installation of CCTV is currently ongoing in the following stations:

- Irishtown

- Ballymun

- Finglas

- Leixlip

- Navan

- Ronanstown

- Castlerea

- Carrickmacross

It is proposed that further stations will be fitted out with CCTV cameras. This is a programme which will be undertaken in the light of operational requirements and the availability of financial resources.
