Police Hot Lines


This year, over 2,500 show goers visited the National Police Service (NPS) Stand at the Nairobi International Trade Fair that ended last Sunday.

Members of the public among them students freely interacted with Police officers who made various exhibitions to enlighten wananchi on the equipment, procedures and activities carried out by the NPS to make the country safe and secure.

During the one week show, the NPS was ranked the best in the promotion of national cohesion and integration development as exemplified in the conversion of former Administration Police Service wards, location and sub-location posts to Kenya Police posts and Patrol Bases under Ward Commander.

The reorganization of the Police where over 24,000 Administration Police Officers have been  integrated  into General Duty Police  to team with the  39,680 Kenya Police General Duty officers under the command  of the  Deputy Inspector General  (DIG) of Kenya  Police, has  increased the presence of officers at the grass root.

General Duty officers at the location and sub location level have helped in maintaining law and order besides enhancing quick response to any security challenge that may arise at the lowest level in the community.

The reorganization has enabled members of the public to freely go about their day to day activities as they feel secure and safe in the new structure.

Members of the public who visited the stand expressed their satisfaction over the operations of the surveillance cameras mounted in the cities of Nairobi and Mombasa where most roads, streets and strategic areas are monitored day and night for safety and security.

The current reorganization and restructuring of the National Police service is geared towards eliminating overlapping and double reporting on security matters to improve service delivery.

In the new arrangement, the Deputy Inspector General Administration Police Service, will provide protective and border security services while the Deputy Inspector General, Kenya Police provides public safety and security. The Directorate of Criminal Investigations will conduct criminal investigations while the Internal Affairs Unit checks discipline and professionalism in the service.
