Over 4,000 stolen motor vehicles have been so far recovered in both cities since 2016.

Criminal records have equally been computerized enabling the daily processing of about 4,000 Police Clearance Certificates, formerly known as Certificate of good conduct. Applications are done electronically via eCitizen and at Directorate of Criminal Investigation offices and Huduma Centers throughout the country.
