The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has begun the vetting process for the police officers who are at the rank of the chief inspectors.
NPSC chairman Johnstone Kavuludi says they are targeting to vet at least 153 officers in the North Rift region.
Speaking in Eldoret town where the exercise is being conducted, Kavuludi said so far they have vetted over 4,000 police officers among them those in the Traffic department.
“Since 2013 when the commission was established we have been vetting police officers who constitutionally are supposed to be taken through this process and so far over 4,000 have been vetted,” he noted.
The vetting will take three days in Eldoret town before the commission moves to Kakamega for a similar exercise that will see another 116 police officers from the Western region also vetted.
“Chief Inspectors of police most of who are deployed as Officer Commanding Police Station (OCSs). These are the men and women who are in touch on a daily basis with members of the public,” said Kavuludi.
