Police have introduced stringent new regulations that will go into effect in a national recruitment exercise scheduled for nexPolice have introduced stringent new regulations that will go into effect in a national recruitment exercise scheduled for next month, Sunday Nation has learnt. Among other requirements, aspirants will have to have received a mark higher than the current mean grade D on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). The joint Kenya Police and Administration Police recruitment exercise will be advertised next week after a week-long meeting during which the new regulations were discussed and drafted by senior officers from both departments and officials of the Police Reforms Implementation Committee (PRIC). The recruitment is intended to supplement the police population ahead of the 2012 General Election during which security agencies anticipate an upsurge in criminal activity. An equal number of recruits will be selected from the country’s administrative districts, and their names will be entered into a computer program for a national tally. Police already have a programme to ensure that recruitment adheres to regional balance requirements. A total of 18,000 recruits will then be selected countrywide and their names processed to establish a final list of 7,000 recruits. The computer-selected recruits will then be separated into three groups and trained at the Kenya Police College, Kiganjo, the General Service Training college, Embakasi, and the Administration Police Training College, Embakasi. In its recommendations, the National Task Force on Police Reforms chaired by retired Justice Philip Ransley placed a moratorium on police recruitment to allow for reforms to be introduced in the force. The recruitment exercise will take place at the same time senior police officers are undergoing scrutiny to weed out unqualified personnel in a rationalisation process recommended by the Ransley team.
