Address the imbalance in Garda resources in Co. Kildare

Kildare has the worst Garda staffing ratio in the country. For many years, a consistently high growth rate in the population has not been adequately planned for, with the result that levels of common crimes, in particular burglaries, have reached very high levels. This petition seeks to highlight this issue with the Minister for Justice and Equality, Alan Shatter TD in an effort to draw his attention to the matter and to illustrate the support that exists in Kildare for a fairer way of allocating Garda resources.
