Kavuludi announces radical changes in police recruitment
National Police Service Commission Chairman Johnston Kavuludi has announced radical changes that will be implemented in the recruitment of new officers into the service.
Speaking in Kobujoi in Nandi County, Kavuludi said next month’s recruitment exercise will be carried out for several days, unlike previous years where recruitment was a one-day event.
He noted that recruits would not be picked directly from recruitment centres this year as was done in previous years, but their certificates will be sent to Nairobi for assessment.
“The difference between this year and the previous years is that the recruits will not undergo physical tests at the recruitment centres,” said Kavuludi.
The NPSC Chairman also confirmed that recruits will also go through four main stages in the recruitment process, and the list of successful candidates will be sent to the NPSC for final analysis to ensure compliance with all requirements before publishing the names in selected local dailies.
“The physical tests will be done in Nairobi and a merit list published. A committee sitting in Nairobi will take two to three weeks to choose those who will have qualified,” he added.
He noted that the move is meant to ensure effective service delivery and rid the service of corruption.
