Kimaiyo pushes for police housing and vehicles

15 August 2013, 11:20

Nairobi - Inspector-General David Kimaiyo has said that the police need at least 11 000 new vehicles, to be distributed to over 200 police stations to facilitate them in their fight against crime.

Kimaiyo who was speaking to a parliamentary committee on administration and national security said that the officers also needed at least 40,000 houses to accommodate serving officers and new recruits, Daily Nation reports

Kimaiyo went on to add that inorder for the police to be effective, the force ought to hire 15,000 new officers every year, as the current ratio of one police officer to 600 citizens was short of the UN recommendation of one police officer to 450 citizens.
