Kenya's National Police Service Commission (NPSC) will vet 166 senior police officers in the third phase of its vetting campaign scheduled to being March 3rd, Kenya's Capital FM reported.
The commission had earlier announced that the third phase would start February 14th and end March 8th.
The NPSC will interview assistant commissioners and senior assistant commissioners to determine if "they are suitable and competent to serve in the National Police Service", NPSC Chairman Johnstone Kavuludi said.
The officers deemed suitable for service will either be promoted or assigned duties based on their qualifications and abilities.
"The issues at hand are not about individual survival, it is not about an individual officer; it is about your readiness after you have been determined suitable to participate in applying the new service standards, using that opportunity in coming up with new better ways of working that will be consistent with international standards," Kavuludi said.
All of Kenya's police officers are expected to go through the vetting process.
