The National Police Service (NPS) has stepped up its fight against terrorism and other criminal activities through an intelligence led multi-agency security approach.

The Inspector General of Police Mr Joseph Boinnet said, cattle rustling has reduced  considerably in the North rift while terrorism  has been reduced  as  aresult of intelligence led policing where security agencies collaborate with the members of the public in sharing intelligence leading to the prevention  of many criminal activities.

The National Police Service has embarked on an ambitious programme to sensitize police officers on a range of new and revised policies which have been formulated to assist the service attain the much needed police reforms.

Already, 30 senior police officers have undergone a Trainer of Trainers (ToT) course at the school of Government to prepare them for a marathon programme to sensitize all officers with a view to change their mind set that continues to paint the service as inept, unprofessional and corrupt.

The officers drawn from Kenya Police Service , Administration Police Service and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have been taken through the contents of a toolkit that will guide them to ensure effective sensitization on the police reforms roadmap that begins in May this year.

“Our people have vowed to  protect themselves and our policy on crime is Prevention” . These were the words of an Ethiopian Police Commander Mr Getahun Haile when he spoke to the Public Communications during Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Cooperation Organization (EAPCCO) organs  Meeting in Naivasha.
Mr Gtahum  said, all citizens are involved  in policing with well laid down  community policing structures. The Citizens are organized in groups on five with one person leading the group. In this groups at the community level, they meet weekly or whenever need arises to deliberate on  many issues on security, health, education, agriculture among others and report their concerns to a higher  organization relevant to the issue at hand.

The Interior Cabinet Secretary Maj. Gen (Rtd) Joseph  Nkaissery has said that  enhanced cooperation among Eastern Africa Countries was the sure way to combat transnational criminal networks, that pose a security threat not only in the region but also the world at large.

This was contained in a speech read on his behalf by the Deputy Inspector General, Administration Police Service Mr. Samuel Arachi during the opening of The Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Cooperation Organization  (EAPCCO) organs  Meeting in a Naivahsa hotel .

The recent terrorist attacks in Brussels come in the wake of Kenya commemorating the first anniversary of the Garrissa University College attacks, which took place on 2nd April 2015. This is a constant reminder that the threat we face as a country is global in nature and not restricted to our region. We express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who lost their loved ones during the two attacks.
