In the near future, police officers will be given the opportunity to voice their complaints and make suggestions regarding their pay and other aspects of their terms of service.
This is according to Interior and Administration Cabinet Secretary Prof Kindiki Kithure, who spoke on Tuesday, November 15, at the Embakasi Training College during a joint press conference with National Police Service Inspector General Japhet Koome and a host of police chiefs.
Kindiki remarked that better working conditions for police officers will encourage them to carry out their duty of preserving public safety.
Professor Kindiki claims that all of the cops’ housing, healthcare, and equipment will be examined in the evaluation.
The CS also said the outfit would be revised after hearing police officers’ suggestions.
“In the next few days, the government will be announcing the measures that we are taking to review the terms and conditions of the NPS through a public participatory process that includes everything from equipment, to mortgages, and healthcare,” the CS stated.
Kindiki also reaffirmed President Ruto’s commitment to protecting the Service’s impartiality by not employing law enforcement for partisan ends.
The CS made note of the President’s recent appointment of the NPS financial officer as evidence of his commitment to police reform.
There has been an increase in criminal activity in the city of Nairobi and its surrounding areas, prompting officials to hold a joint media briefing at Embakasi College the day following one at Harambee House.
Kindiki and the NPS brass have sworn to bring the situation under control by whatever means necessary.
Both briefings addressed the ongoing problem of cattle rustling and banditry in the North Rift, an area where President William Ruto’s government has pledged to bring peace through resolving insecurity issues peacefully.
“To the bandits, game on. We are coming to the counties where you are hiding. We cannot have some parts of this country, 60 years after independence, still being controlled by bandits. We are coming for you,'” Kindiki warned.
