As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for Garda resources, including the acquisition of vehicles for the Garda fleet, and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter.

I am, however, advised by the Garda Authorities that, as at the 27 February 2017 which is the latest date for which figures are available, the Garda fleet comprised of some 2,815 vehicles. While the standard specification for official Garda vehicles does not include satellite navigation, I am advised for example that some 32 vehicles were purchased in 2016 which had satellite navigation installed
