Interior CS Dr Fred Matiang'i

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i on Monday announced that his ministry is set to start the cleanest police station competition whose winner will be promoted.

Matiang’i, stated that the competition that is set to begin in July and which will be a yearly thing, will see the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) be promoted automatically.

“We agreed with Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, that the OCS of the cleanest and best police station in the country should be promoted automatically,” remarked Matiang’i.

The CS further urged that the officers should provide a suitable environment for Kenyans when seeking services from the stations.

“I will go to Naivasha Police Station myself, that’s where we’re going to begin this competition. We want clean police stations.

“When wananchi come to be served, let them be served in a clean and respectful environment.

“We will begin the assessment after July when you have had enough time to talk to your commanders in the field,” stated the Interior CS.

Buruburu police station awarded

In 2018, Buruburu police station had been rewarded for being the cleanest police station in Nairobi and second best in the country by Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA).

The police station had cleanliness of the highest level with continuous water supply which is rare for most stations.

Within the station, the offenders are categorically placed in separate cells which are clean, well ventilated and properly lit.

According to the Officer Commanding Police Division Geoffrey Mayek, the inmates are given three meals a day and are allowed to bask in the sun when the cells get too cold.
