The Directorate of Criminal Investigations welcomed 48 officers selected to join the country’s foremost investigative agency.
The officers are part of the cohort of 298 direct entry specialists cadets who graduated at the National Police College Main Campus – Kiganjo on January 20, 2022.
The officers were received by the Director of Criminal Investigations Mr George Kinoti, accompanied by the deputy director Mr Joseph Ashimala, the Director of Personnel, Dr Mwangi Wanderi, among other senior officers and top DCI commanders.
Their postings were effected after the completion of a comprehensive selection process that saw the specialists deployed to the Directorate, for further deployment to their areas of specialization.
The officers include Doctors of Medicine and Surgery, Advocates of the High Court, Cyber Security experts, Molecular Biology scientists, and Computer scientists. Others hold qualifications in Analytical Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, Forensic Science, Physics, and Engineering among other specialized fields.
While addressing the officers, the DCI Director congratulated and welcomed them heartily to the DCI family. He impressed upon them to execute their duties with diligence and utmost fidelity to the law as the surest way to enjoying a fulfilling career in investigations.
Mr Kinoti reminded the officers that they had taken an oath to serve the country without fear or favour, affection or ill will and urged them to desist from the temptation to engage in corrupt practices or sell justice to the highest bidder.
“I call upon you to uphold the good reputation that the Directorate has so painstakingly earned over the past few years and do not use your appointment as an opportunity to deny justice to those who deserve it,” said Mr Kinoti.
The DCI director also reminded the officers to manage their expectations and take time to learn from their more experienced colleagues in the field regardless of the ranks they hold, adding that proficiency in investigations knows no ranks.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
