 355.  Deputy Dara Calleary Information on Dara Calleary Zoom on Dara Calleary  asked the Minister for Justice and Equality Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter  the total number of Garda stations here as at 31 December 2011; the number of these stations that have an e-mail address; his views that every Garda station should have a unique email connection; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6242/12]

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that the total number of Garda Stations in the country at the end of 2011 was [483]703. I have been further informed by the Garda Commissioner that there are currently 421 networked Garda locations in the country. While not every Garda station is a networked location, every District and Divisional Headquarters is, therefore providing access to that network for every member of An Garda Síochána. All Garda stations which are not directly linked to the Garda network have secure voice communications to their local networked station which meets the current operational requirements.
