The nationwide campaign is currently being carried out during which police men and women are being scrutinised and reevaluated based on their suitability for the job at hand.

Kenya’s National Police Service Commission (NPSC) is carrying out the assessment, which was set in motion to ensure that everybody on the force is still fit to adequately serve and protect the nation.
Secretary of Interior and Co-ordination of National Government, Joseph Ole Lenku stated, "The vetting will not only give Kenyans men and women who are qualified to serve but will also give confidence to officers of lower ranks who look upon them for direction and leadership", via All Africa.

The campaign kicked off with the vetting of 31 ‘high-ranking’ officers, writes All Africa and will continue as the week progresses.

While the process is healthy and ensures a productive workforce, many officers risk losing their jobs. Lenku however revealed those officers will be adequately remunerated based on their services.
