Matiang’i introduces compulsory course for all police officers

Major reforms

CS Matiang’i introduces compulsory six-month ICT course for all trainee police officers

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i directed that all police trainees should undertake a high-level Information Communication Technology (ICT) course for the entire six months that they will be in the police training camp.

Matiang’i directed that the course will be effected in the next police intake as part of the reforms being undertake to digitize police operations.

We want an open and transparent system. Jointly with the Ministry of ICT, we are putting up ICT training in the police service. Effective from the next intake, police officers who will go through training must undertake high-level ICT training for the entire six months so that they are able to use this system,” the CS said.

He issued the directive during the launch of the Digital Human Resource Information System in Kilifi County which will allow the police service to maintain a digitized Occurrence Book and a comprehensive Crime Management System.

Matiang’i urged police officers to embrace technology as way of keeping up with the evolution of crime and improving service to Kenyans.

This system now gives the Inspector General a bird’s eye view of the National Police Service, making it easy to identify vacancies and the skills needed to fill in these vacancies. Alongside other measures, we’re beginning to institute meritocracy over nepotism. It’s no longer about who you know, but, what you know,” the CS said.
