Almost all of the Kildare population (95.5%) lives within twenty kilometres (km) of a 24 hour garda station, according to new figures from the Central Statistics Office.
And just over a third (35.5%) live within 5km or less.
That figure rises to 65.3% when the proportion living within 10km are counted.
Just 4.4% of the population live 20km or more from a 24 hour station, compared to 7.3% of the population of the State as a whole.
The figures show that 17.1% of Kildare people live between two and five kilometres or under from such a manned station and that 18.3% of the county population live two kilometres or less from a 24 hour station.

Residents are just 1.8km away, while the figures is 4.6% in Fingal.
In Kildare that figure is 8.5 kilometres and for the State as a whole 7.3%.
