    The National Police Service (NPS) has embarked on an ambitious program to sensitize all police officers on trauma healing and psychological wellbeing as they fulfil their mandate of providing safety and security in the country.

We have lately had cases where Police officers have been killed by civilians using machetes. The latest case being the killing of a 29year old Police officer by civilians in Lamu yesterday. The officer was attacked without provoking or even attempting to arrest anyone. To our surprise no civil society has condemned this unfortunate incident as if it is a normal incident for a police officer to be killed. Such actions widen conflict between police and criminals and promote panic amongst police while using their firearms in the course of duty.
It is not in the nature of the IG to shout. He is organized and does his work quietly. The IG is working tirelessly to promote good working relations between the members of the Public and Police officers. A number of police officers have been relieved of their duty and arraigned before court after internal disciplinary mechanism.
National Police Service remains committed in discharging its mandate and we shall always work within the law.
