Kenya National Police Service Announces 7000 Vacancies

The Kenya National Police Service has announced 7,000 vacancies for recruits as it moves to beef up the capacity of law enforcement officers in the run-up to the March General Election.
This will be the second batch of recruits that will be trained under the new curriculum which increased the course period from nine to 15 months and raised the entry bar for those seeking to join the service.
The employer, the newly-established National Police Service Commission, says 4,000 of the successful applicants would be posted to the Kenya Police and the others to the Administration Police.
“The National Police Service Commission seeks to recruit suitable and qualified candidates who satisfy the provision of the Constitution, the enabling Acts and the additional criteria to be trained as Police Constables,” said Johnston Kavuludi, the chairperson of NPSC.
