National Police Service Commission (NPSC) Chairman Eliud Kinuthia has revealed plans to revolutionize the recruitment process by shifting it online, aiming to eliminate corruption and enhance transparency.

Kinuthia emphasized the commission’s commitment to conducting recruitment with integrity, stating, “Police officer recruitment will be conducted with integrity, free from corruption and bribery. We will ensure that all vacancies are communicated to each region, strictly adhering to service standing orders and the National Police Act, which mandates online recruitment to prevent corruption.”

The move towards online recruitment aligns with the National Police Service standing orders and the Act, as Kinuthia highlighted during a gathering at Majembeni town Market Centre in Lamu County to celebrate the 61st Madaraka Day.

Notably, the Public Service Commission has already initiated the process, mandating all applications to be submitted online. This shift comes amid previous discrepancies in budget figures for law enforcement officer recruitment, leading to clarifications from NPSC and Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome.

Kinuthia commended President William Ruto, Lamu County leadership, and security agencies for their efforts in maintaining peace and security in the region, allowing residents to engage in socio-economic activities without disruptions.
