Police training term to be reduced to nine months

04 April 2014, 09:26 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Police training period will be reduced to nine months from the current 15 months that had been recommended by an inquiry commission.

The Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo said the decision was reached following a thorough audit of the police curriculum.

He stated that the course content could be covered in nine months as was the case before and the remaining period be covered through mentoring in the field.

“I wish to mention here that after a thorough audit of the curriculum, we have decided that the course content can be covered in nine months as was the case before and the remaining period be covered through mentoring in the field during the probationary period,” stated Kimaiyo.

He said the move would enable the government to recruit more officers once every year so as to increase the numbers of security apparatus to curb rising insecurity incidents.

“This will enable us to recruit once every year in a deliberate move by the Government to increase the police numbers as the country grapples with the numerous security challenges that we face at the moment in various parts of the country,” Kimaiyo noted.
