Officers who serve more than 3 Years to be transferred
Appearing before the floor of the Senate,the Interior Cabinet Secretary mentioned that the process will be immediate with the
National Police Service (NPS) given a maximum of 60 days to implement the directive.
“The directive by the government is that any officer after the 60 days who continues to resist or for whatever reason does not move to a different station, the salary will be stopped. It is that serious,” said CS Kindiki.
The Interior Boss insisted that the police transfer policy on duration basis has failed to implemented by different regimes.
He also highlighted that police officers on special assignments their duration timeline will be a maximum of one year.
“For those doing serious operations, normally we move them within one year because of the kinetic and demanding nature of the operations they are involved in,” Kindiki said.
Further,Kindiki disclosed plans underway to streamline the supervision of National Police Reservists (NPRs) to counter misuse of the firearms issued to them to help in curtailing banditry.
“NPRs play a pivotal role in supplementing the efforts of security agencies to trace, track, and apprehend criminals, particularly in areas that are bandit-prone and face the risk of terror,” he said.
In Samburu county,460 NPR officers have been trained and deployed since November 2022.
