Prepare for major reshuffle soon- Matiang’i tells police officers

Big operation to redeploy all police officers announced by Matiang'i

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i

Interior Cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i said that all police officers who have served in one station for more than four years will be transferred,

The CS said the redeployment, scheduled to begin next month, will affect junior and senior officers and will also be aimed at delocalising police stations.

Matiang’i said the National Police Commission will introduce delocalisation policy where police officers will not be allowed to serve in their home counties.

We are going to look into the list and make sure that if you come from Nyamira, you will be deployed in Kwale or Garissa. This will help in improving our security,” he said.
