Nakuru OCPD assures residents of security

23 September 2013, 11:12 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru town OCPD Bernard Kioko has urged the public to continue working closely with the authorities in order to improve security in the country.

He further observed that the public should not feel intimidated by the Westgate attacks saying the government is managing the situation.

“People should not feel scared by these attacks because our security officers are in control of the matter,” he said.

Speaking on Monday to the media, Kioko urged local business communities in the town to be on high alert and report any suspicious activities to the police.

He said that his police officers are well prepared to deal with any form of insecurity that might arise.

Kioko said that security issue in the country is a collective responsibility and that every Kenyan has a role to play in ensuring that peace and security continues to prevail.

“We have all the counter measures ready and wananchi should continue giving us relevant information in case they spot any suspicious group or individual,” said Kioko.

The OCPD also urged the public to stop spreading speculation on social media saying it is not helping solve the situation.  

A spot check done by the media revealed that business was usual in Nakuru town with private security personnel on high alert in all the main supermarkets and restaurants.

However, both regular police and administration police were spotted patrolling the town on foot and on vehicles.  

Passengers travelling long distance journeys were scanned at Railway police station before proceeding with their travel.
