Nairobi - Police officers have been urged to always wear their force numerals while on duty or in official gear.
The National Police Service Commission while concluding the vetting of traffic police officers on Friday noted that most of them appeared before the commission with medals and force numerals yet none of them wears with them on the roads.
Commissioner Mushir Mohammed urged the officers to have the force numerals on them and not in the pockets.

"If you have nothing to hide, have the number on your chest. It will even assist in fighting corruption," Mushir said.
However, the National Police Service Commission Chairman Johnston Kavuludi assured police officers that they will be treated fairly as the 10-day vetting of traffic police came to a close in Nakuru.
He said that a total of 328 traffic officers who are either stationed in the Rift Valley or were stationed in the region between 2012 and 2013 were vetted “and they all cooperated with the panelists.”
This brings the total number of officers who have been interviewed so far to 920, he concluded.
