Police challenged to embrace technology in handling emerging crimes

25 August 2016, 15:20 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Police officers have been challenged to change tack in their day-to-day operations in order to tackle new and emerging crimes.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said the world is changing technologically giving rise to new challenges for the police force in handling contemporary crimes including cybercrime, terrorism, abductions and misuse of telecommunication gadgets.

The IG said the changing nature and growing sophistication of crime called for the police to embrace modern technology to more effectively detect crimes and adapt their services to meet such needs.

Boinnet, who was speaking in Nyeri during the launch of a nationwide police reform campaign said, public still expected a police service that focuses on fighting any form of crime to ensure their safety and security.

He said it was thus incumbent upon the National Police Service to embrace change in order to remain effective as well as be in a position to turn information gathered into actionable intelligence.

“The police force must be ready to embrace operational, technological and organization changes in order to effectively fight crime in a difficult and dynamic world,” said the IG
