Canada has reaffirmed its dedication to supporting Kenya in strengthening the capacity of its security forces to effectively combat and resolve criminal activities.

Speaking at the launch of the Training of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Research and Intelligence Bureau detectives on operational intelligence, Magdala Turpin, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Liaison Officer, conveyed Canada’s unwavering support for Kenya’s security efforts.

Turpin urged the trainees to “draw best practices from their facilitators and utilize them effectively in the execution of their mandate.” The Canadian government, through its embassy in Kenya, has generously sponsored the training of 20 DCI Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau detectives. This initiative follows a recent graduation of another class with similar training, also sponsored by the Canadian Embassy.

The training, facilitated by experts from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, has garnered praise from Baraza Walumoli DCI, the Director of Planning at the DCI. “Meticulous intelligence analysis has seen many complex cases solved,” Walumoli stated, highlighting the impact of the training.

Expressing gratitude on behalf of the DCI, Mohamed Amin thanked the Canadian government for their invaluable support to Kenyan security personnel. “We appreciate the support from the Justin Trudeau-led government,” Amin emphasized.
