President Kenyatta Boosts Campaign against Insecurity in Kenya



As part of efforts to improve efficiency in addressing the current security challenges in Kenya, President Uhuru Kenyatta has recently said the police department is being provided with modern equipment to aid quick and effective response of troops to trouble spot.
The National Police Service will for the first time acquire Armoured Personnel Carriers that will be used, especially by officers working in terror prone areas, and also to secure frontier areas of the country.
The government has also purchased a new helicopter and two other MI-17 helicopters are being refurbished to improve police ability to quickly move troops to any trouble spot and generally improve their mobility. Officers who will man the equipment are undergoing training.
The police Air-wing had for years been ill-equipped and had not been effectively providing air support to ground forces including tactical reconnaissance, night reconnaissance, air observation, and casualty evacuation, especially in remote areas.
