 452.  Deputy Eoghan Murphy Information on Eoghan Murphy Zoom on Eoghan Murphy  asked the Minister for Justice and Equality Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter  if he will provide any information he may have in relation to the changes of opening and closing times of Garda stations in Dublin south east and any proposed changes to the community Garda position. [16121/12]

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter As the Deputy is aware, it is proposed to reduce the public opening hours of the following stations in the Dublin South, South Central and East Divisions — Cabinteely, Stepaside, Kill O’ the Grange, Sundrive, Terenure and Donnybrook. These stations are currently open to the public on a 24-hour basis and will, in future, be closed to the public between 10pm and 8am. It is important to remember that while the Garda stations in question will have reduced opening hours to the public, they will remain as functioning Garda stations on a 24 hour basis.

The allocation of resources, including personnel to Community Policing etc, is a matter for the Garda Commissioner. The priority will remain that an effective and professional policing service is provided to every part of the community, both rural and urban.
