124 National Police Reservists (NPR) joined the National Police Service (NPS) following the completion of their basic training and subsequent pass Out held at Ltungai Conservancy Camp in Samburu County, northern Kenya, on Monday.
This is the second cohort of trainees to Pass Out after 170 NPRs were inducted in a similar exercise held on December 16, 2022, at the same camp.
Representing the Inspector General of Police, the Rift Valley Regional Police Commander, Mr.Tom Mboya Odero, Assistant Inspector General, urged the Reservists to demonstrate high levels of professionalism and integrity in their service delivery to the nation.
He affirmed that the recruits are fully prepared to be incorporated into the multi-agency security framework to deal firmly and decisively with the security menace, especially cattle rustling and banditry that pose existential ramifications to security in the region.
The pass out came just a day after one NPR single-handedly repulsed over 10 bandits that attempted to drive away over 100 goats at Losuk Valley in the same region.
NPS lauded the bravery and commitment exhibited by the reservist in the execution of his duties.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
