Police: Operation Usalama Watch has reduced crime

24 April 2014, 08:09 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Police spokesperson Zipporah Mboroki has said the ongoing Operation Usalama Watch has immensely reduced criminal activities in Nairobi city.

 Mboroki said the operation has helped the government to nab aliens who have been living in the country illegally.

 “The operation involves at least six government departments in cracking down and deportation of illegal immigrants including the police who play a major role in carrying out door to door searches. The operation is meant to reduce crime and not just terror,” said Mboroki.

She stated that the involved police officers search for weapons, stolen goods, drugs and any other property acquired through crime or fraud.

“Suspects are interrogated and their identification verified and if the officers are not satisfied, they escort the suspects to the vetting centre at Kasarani Stadium, which has been gazetted as a police station,” reiterated Mboroki.

She said after the vetting, the suspects are divided into groups of 17 and are taken to separate rooms for the taking of fingerprints and photographs.
