Department of Justice and Equality
278. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of gardaí by rank in each divisional burglary response unit in 2017 and to date in 2018, in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [53298/18]
As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the distribution of personnel and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter. Garda management keeps this distribution under review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities to ensure optimum use is made of the resources.
I have asked the Garda Commissioner for the specific information requested and when it is received I will write directly to the Deputy.
