H.E Governor Simon Kachapin, Pokot South MP David Pkosing, Deputy County Commissioner, senior investigation officer-West Pokot, OCSs, OCPDs, and county officials adorned the launching of the National Police Reservists (NPR) at Kapenguria Police Headquarters. This marked a very memorable day since 1948 when the colonial government recruited the police reservists.


For a long time, insecurity has been a major issue in West Pokot County especially at the borders with Baringo, Turkana, Elgeyo Marakwet and Samburu. This has prompted a lot of initiatives like community policing that entails good and mutual relationship between the public and the police; the public reporting any signs that deem to be a threat to their security and in turn the police who are responsible for maintaining law and order acting upon it to safeguard the community.


220 was the number added to 649 reservists enlisted in the national police. The NPRs are to be deployed as follows; Pokot Central-100, Pokot South-61, Pokot North-39 and West Pokot-20. They will be under the OCPDs and OCSs of their respective areas. The distribution is influenced by the verge of security need in the locality. Recently, Pokot central is leading in insecurity according to reports.

 


Governor Simon Kachapin encouraged them to embrace the spirit of UTUMISHI KWA WOTE and work together with security committees in their areas, the police and the locals to keep our county safe.
