879. Deputy Colm Keaveney asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of Gardaí in the Drugs Unit; their location based on division; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16172/13] 

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that on 28 February 2013, the latest date for which figures are readily available, the personnel strength of the Garda National Drugs Unit and each Divisional Drugs Unit is as set out in the table below.

 

Both the Garda National Drugs Unit and the Divisional units are also supported in their work by officers from other national units such as the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the Criminal Assets Bureau and the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation. Furthermore, all Gardaí have responsibility, inter alia, to deal with drug related issues as and when they arise.
