Police And Prison Taskforce Receives Proposals From National Police Service
Kenya’s Inspector General of Police (IG), Japhet Koome, on Monday handed over National Police Service (NPS) proposals to the National Taskforce on the Improvement of the Terms and Conditions of service and other Reforms of the National Police and Kenya Prisons Service.
Addressing the taskforce chaired by Chief Justice Emeritus David Maraga at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi, the IG highlighted critical challenges faced by police officers in the execution of their duties and thus hampering efficient and effective service delivery to the public.
He called upon the Taskforce team to visit all parts of the country and seek further submissions and views from members of NPS on the ground.
CJ (rtd) Maraga, on his part, outlined the taskforce’s objectives, which include identifying the constraints on effective service delivery by NPS and Prisons Services and reviewing and recommending improvements of the terms and conditions of service.
The IG also gave a tour to the team as police officers from different NPS Units showcased their tools and equipment of work.
The taskforce was established last year by President William in a move to reform police and prison services.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
