Over 80 000 police officers to be vetted in NPSC’s phase two

24 October 2015, 08:42 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) will vet over 80 000 police officers in phase two of the vetting process.

The NPSC Chairman, Johnstone Kavuludi said police to be vetted in phase two include officer in charge of police stations such as the OCS and their deputies, CID officers and those in charge of traffic such as the Chief Constable and officers manning weighbridges.

“We must accept that vetting is part and parcel of us now. Vetting is not intended to hound officers from the office; we stick to NPSC’s vetting regulations,” assured Kavuludi.

He pointed out that the vetting of officers is part of NPSC’s reforms agenda in the Police Force in addition to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive and commitment in ensuring corruption is eradicated in Public Service.

“The vetting exercise seeks to improve working condition of police and their suitability established so that they can be placed in higher ranks. We want this not to be just a walk in the park,” said Kavuludi.

He added that soon the commission will be announcing appointments of police to higher ranks where the promotion will be based on the officer’s performance, academic qualifications and among other relevant merits.

The NPSC chairman also said regional integration and economic development such as the LAPPSET and the North Corridor infrastructure projects cannot be successful without  disciplined police officers.

“We want to restore public confidence in police because if we have officers who are not delivering then we are not accountable to citizens. We want officers who are competent, effective, efficient and suitable in performing their work,” he said.

Kavuludi further said his commission is working closely with anti-corruption and other investigative agencies to ensure officers dismissed from the Police Service for engaging in corruption or other criminal practices are subjected to investigation and prosecution.
