The Inspector of General Police, Mr. Hilary Mutyambai, on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, joined the Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang'i at the passing out parade of 451 National Administration Officers (NGAO) upon completion of six weeks of paramilitary training at the National Police College-Embakasi 'A' Campus.
This training, a requirement in the career progression of administration officers, further sought to equip graduands with the right skills and attitude to undertake their duties effectively.
The cohort of Assistant County Commissioners (ACC) who undertook Administration Course No.1/2022 comprised 285 male and 166 female officers.
They benefited from training on countering security and crime concerns, including female genital mutilation, terrorism, violent extremism, sexual and gender-based violence, and organized and transnational crimes, among other emerging areas.
Speaking at the event, the IG-NPS noted that the progressive nature of the security environment requires security and administration officers to keep abreast with the legal and constitutional tools at their disposal and to maintain discipline in their private and professional lives.
On his part, the Interior Principal Secretary, Dr. Karanja Kibicho, who had accompanied the CS, thanked the Inspector General, college staff, and the Ministry of Interior officers for the planning and executing the skill-rich training.
At the event's culmination, Dr. Fred Matiang'i, the Chief Guest, reiterated the government's continued commitment to providing requisite training to security and administration officers.
He said this has long bridged the competency gaps by actors under the multi-agency security set-up.
He encouraged the public to sustain their partnership with NGAO and police officers through existing community policing programmes.
He further urged graduands to work harmoniously with other agencies to secure a free and incident-free General Election.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
