The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has just concluded the vetting of 322 traffic police officers based in the Central Region, at the Red Court Hotel in Nyeri town.

The officers were drawn from all the six Counties within the Central Region comprising Kiambu, Kirinyaga, Muran’ga, Laikipia, Nyandarua and Nyeri.

The officers vetted are in the ranks of Chief Inspector, Inspector, Senior Sergeant, Sergeant, Corporal and Constables.

NPSC Chairperson Mr. Johnston Kavuludi led the team of Commissioners and panelists from other partner organizations among them the National Police Service, Law Society of Kenya, Kenya National Commission for Human Rights and the Council of Governors in the ten day exercise which ran from 7th to 17th February 2017.

This brings the total number of traffic police officers so far vetted under this cohort to 1925 officers nationally. This includes 236 officers from Coast Region, 192 from Nyanza Region, 152 from Western Region and 328 from Rift Valley and 700 from Nairobi Region.

The results of the 908 officers from Coast, Western, Nyanza and Rift Valley were released in December last year and 127 officers were found unsuitable to continue serving in the National Police Service. Majority of these have since filed for a review of their cases by the Commission.

The Commission will soon be embarking on vetting the remaining 356 officers from Nairobi Region. This will be followed by vetting of officers in Eastern and North Eastern Regions before their results are finally released in April/May this year.

Pursuant to its mandate to determine promotions in the National Police Service (NPS) as provided for in Article 246 (3) (a) of the Constitution, the Commission effected 53 promotions in a Board meeting held on 26th July 2016 and directed the Inspector-General to convey the decision of the Commission to the promoted officers.


In determining the promotions the Commission took into account parameters that are laid out in the Constitution, the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) Act and the NPSC regulations on promotions which include seniority; merit; work record; ethnic and regional balance and gender mainstreaming. Vetting also formed part of the criteria.


Out of the 53 officers, five (5) were promoted to the rank of Senior Assistant Inspector General (SAIG) and thirty-two (32) to the rank of Assistant Inspector General. Sixteen (16) officers were promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police and placed in acting capacity for confirmation to the rank of Assistant Inspector General within six (6) months.


Promotions to the ranks of Commissioner of Police and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) will be announced in two weeks time.
