Police Reforms: Too Important to Neglect, Too Urgent to Delay


Police Reforms in Kenya

Following the elections of a New government in Kenya last year, action is now being taken on the calls for reform. In March 2004, the National Constitutional Conference adopted The Draft Constitution of Kenya.

In keeping with the new momentum for change, the Kenya Police have also began the process of developing plans for radical change within the service. The former head of the Police Force, Commissioner Edwin Nyaseda, stated severally that the police are committed to change and that he would like to transform the Police from a "Force" to a "Service". Consequently, the police published a draft Strategic Plan 2003-2007 which was debated at a validation workshop held on 23-24 March 2004.
