Kenya’s DCI Hosts National Crime Agency from the U.K.

Reading Time: 1 minute

Officials from the National Crime Agency (NCA), U.K.’s lead agency in the fight against organized crime, on Wednesday, paid a courtesy call to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss Mohamed Amin at his Nairobi office.

The officials Simon Faulkner and Amanda Hickman, NCA’s International liaison officers, were on a mission to explore ways the two agencies can strengthen collaboration in the fight against organized crime not only in Kenya but along the Horn of Africa.

The National Crime Agency has previously sponsored and facilitated capacity-building programmes to improve Kenyan officers’ professional and investigative capacity in dealing with organized crimes, including Drugs and Human Trafficking, Money Laundering, Smuggling, Crimes against Children, and Terrorism, among others.

The British High Commission, through the National Crime Agency, has been the East African nation’s valued partner for many years, and their support in developing its human resource capacity cannot be overemphasized.

For instance, two years ago, the National Crime Agency sponsored the construction and equipping of a Child Protection centre of excellence in Mombasa that has rescued hundreds of vulnerable children from abuse and exploitation.

Mr. Mohamed Amin, on behalf of the DCI, thanked the NCA for the mutually beneficial partnership and committed to strengthening the cooperation between the two institutions.
