 HISTORY MADE AS 23,990 APS AND OVER 2000 ASTU OFFICERS JOIN KPS AND APS RESPECTIVELY (2019-07-12).

The Inspector General of the National Police Service Mr.Hilary Mutyambai today attended a historic function that saw 23,990 Administration Police Service officers transferred to the Kenya Police Service.

At the same time, the entire Anti-Stock Theft Unit previously under the Kenya Police Service moved over to the Administration Police Service.

The special handing and taking over ceremony was presided over by the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government, Dr. Fred Matiang’i. The Inspector General thanked the Dr. Matiang’i for his unwavering support towards the transformation agenda in the National Police Service which has ensured quality policing services to wananchi.

The IG reiterated his commitment to the implementation of Police reforms and transformation initiated by his predecessor, Mr. Joseph Boinnet. He indicated that the successful handover of the 23,990 APS officers to the KPS was a clear testimony to that resolve.

Along the line of police reforms and responsiveness to the public, the Inspector General said that traffic operations on our roads have been streamlined to remove all unnecessary roadblocks. Apart from road lockups necessitated by operational needs to respond to criminals on flight, all other police checks on our highways will have to be authorized by the Regional Police Commanders having jurisdiction, said the IG.

Noting that the event was a great landmark in the history of National Police Service, the Inspector General reminded the officers that despite the changes in the command chain, they still remain under the NPS umbrella. They were therefore needed to abide by the dictates of hard work and discipline in order to progress well in their career. Mr. Mutyambai emphasized that the main aim of integration and reorganization was to make the National Police Service more effective, efficient and responsive. He urged all police officers to embrace the integration process in the interest of Kenyans who deserve better and improved services.

The Inspector General assured the Public that transfer of officers from one service to another will not create any vacuum since arrangements have been made to ensure a seamless transition so as not to create any security breach. Law and order will not in any way be compromised. The IG added that the National Police Service had undertaken a mapping exercise of all police stations, posts and patrol bases for proper deployment of personnel and resources.

Never lose focus on the main aim of this integration and reorganization which is to make the National Police Service more effective, efficient and responsive…Hillary Mutyambai, IG NPS said

‘’After today’s event, our next move is identification and deployment of suitable Ward Police Commanders famously known as OCS. This new team of Ward commanders will be expected to implement our policy of making police stations to be the centers of policing services in the National Police Service. It is at the station where the rubber meets the road; if things are right at the station level, most of the objectives of NPS will be accomplished’’. 

As part of police reforms, digitizing the Occurrence Book as well as other police records and developing a case file management system are in the offing. This will upgrade police operations and investigations and ultimately improve public safety and security which provides a conducive environment for socio economic development.
