Kenyatta announced major reforms which include new command structure, rebranding and housing allowances set to be implemented in the Service.

He said that the reforms were meant to make the police a service that is respected rather than a force that is feared.

While disclosing the new structure, the head of state scrapped off 12 positions which include:

1. Administration Police Service regional commander

2. The Kenya Police Service regional commander

3. DCI regional commander

4. County co-ordinating commander

5. Kenya Police Service county commander

6. AP county commander

7. DCI county commander

8. AP sub-county commander

9. DCI sub-county commander

10. Kenya Police Service OCPD

11. District AP Commander

12. AP Ward commander

At the same time, President Kenyatta mentioned that the mandate of the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) will be expanded. Apart from being in charge of the police station, OCSs will also be responsible for police posts and patrols in their respective areas.

According to the new reforms, there will be one Regional Police Commander known as RPC, one County Police Commander referred to as CPC and a sub-county Police Commander (SPC).

"The reforms - ranging from changes in structure and command, integration of Regular and Administration Police, change of uniform, rebranding of colleges and introduction of housing allowances for junior officers - are also meant to make more efficient," he said.

The President also launched the Policy Framework and Strategy on Reorganisation of the National Police Service.
