Kimaiyo: Insecurity not only a Kenyan problem

15 April 2014, 11:22 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo Monday said the security challenges that Kenya is facing are not unique to the country alone but are a challenge to regional and global security agencies.

Kimaiyo who was speaking during the full dress rehearsal parade at administration police training college in Embakasi ahead of the pass out scheduled for 17 April said it was evident that today’s criminals are more organized and sophisticated in their undertakings and police needs to apply all efforts to stay ahead of them.

“They are able to buy the latest technology, and even corrupt their way out in order to achieve their target,” he said.

He urged all police officers to design interdiction methods to enable them be ahead of the criminals saying they will not wait for police to be familiar with their modes of operation.

Kimaiyo told the new recruits to be diligent in their service to the nation since they represent the Government in their service.

“Police work is very interesting. Every moment officers are faced with different situations which require their immediate action. In the course of your duty you will meet situations which will require your immediate decision without the opportunity to consult your seniors for guidance,” he said.

He however admitted that mistakes may happen while in service and promised to defend any member of the service who may err in the honest believe that he was doing the right thing.

“I will equally deal with any officer who deliberately commits acts that put the service into disrepute, as this is the hallmark of discipline,” he said.
