New digital system will improve police reforms in Kilifi County

KILIFI (Xinhua) -- Kenya on Monday launched a new digital system to improve efficiency in the police service as part of ongoing efforts to reforms.

The Digital Human Resource Information System will bear accurate, real-time data on each police officer, including their recruitment, training, career progress, deployment, family records, and other related information.

Fred Matiang’i, Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government who launched the system in Kilifi County in the coastal region, said the aim is to infuse accountability, efficiency, honesty and professionalism amongst our officers as part of the ongoing police reforms.

Matiang’i said the police officers must embrace technology to keep pace with the evolution of crime, as we strive to provide first-class service.

He said the elaborate intranet system will enhance the ability of the National Police Service to share local information and intelligence within the security fraternity on a national and international scale as appropriate at the touch of a button.

Matiang’i said the system supports the selection, recruitment, and management of police officers, deployment, performance appraisals, merit-based promotions, and transparent transfers.

Joe Mucheru, cabinet secretary for Information, Communications and Technology described the system as a step in the right direction and challenged other government agencies and departments to emulate the same to counter the evolving criminal tactics.

"Embracing technology is no longer an option for all government departments, especially the security sector.

"We will make sure the police data gathered is secure through a biometric system," Mucheru said.

Joseph Boinnet, Inspector General of Police noted that the system will bring fairness in the police disciplinary process.

He said a police officer’s track record will contribute significantly to investigating allegations of misconduct from members of the public or internally.
