PRESS STATEMENT

The attention of the National Police Service has been drawn to an article appearing in one of the dailies depicting an erroneous perception that there is a disquiet regarding a recent directive on transfers and redeployment of officers.

The National Police Service wishes to state that in September 2018, a new policy framework and the strategy for re-organization of the National Police Service was unveiled. The National Police Service built a greater strategy in closing the cultural gap between the Kenya Police Service (KPS), the Administration Police Service (APS) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), together with their constituent formations and specialized units.

In consultation with the National Police Service Commission, a common command structure was developed necessitating deployment and transfers of officers across the services. Consequently, in all levels of command in the field and Formations, the three parallel commands were collapsed into a single police command taking overall authority and responsibility under the Kenya Police Service.

The overall effect of the restructuring and reorganization process was harmonized command structure avoiding duplicity of duties.

This meant that out of three officers commanding a region, county and sub county, only one officer took command and the remaining two re-deployed appropriately.

Those officers who were re-deployed to service command headquarters have been assigned specific duties and none of the officers is idling at the service headquarters. For example: Mr. Philip Ndolo AIG, Mr. Gideon Amala AIG and Mr. William Saiya, Senior AIG, serve as the Regional Commander Nairobi Area, Staff Officer Operations coordinating Nairobi and Central Regions and staff officer coordinating all National Police Service training institutions respectively while Mr. Peter Mwanzia Mwania, AIG, is deployed at the directorate of operations.

It has captured the attention of the IG that a number of officers have overstayed in operation areas in the North Eastern, North Rift, Upper Eastern and Coast Regions among other arears for as long as seven years while others have equally overstayed in urban area for over ten years. The IG has therefore directed that all officers, except specialized officers, who have stayed in one region for more than three years be transferred.

We wish to inform that transfers and deployment within the NPS are guided by policy and upon enlistment, all police officers are made to understand that they have to be ready to serve in any part of the country. The movement of officers to either operational or urban areas therefore, has never and should never be a contentious issue in the service.

All transfers will continue to be effected in a humane way, giving special consideration to special needs and circumstances.
