Police County Commanders are senior police officers responsible for managing and administrating police operations within a particular county. They are appointed by the National Police Service Commission in Kenya and serve as the head of the police department in their respective counties.
The duties of a Police County Commander include maintaining law and order, preventing and detecting crime, protecting life and property, and upholding the rights of citizens. They are responsible for the deployment of police officers in their county, as well as the allocation of resources and equipment to their officers.
Police County Commanders are also responsible for fostering positive relationships between the police and the community they serve. This includes working closely with community leaders and organizations, attending community events, and ensuring that their officers provide responsive and effective service to the public.
Overall, Police County Commanders play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and security of their county and work to build trust and confidence between the police and the community they serve.
“In our rank of county commissioners, we should have more lady county commissioners as we go along and I would like to urge the deputy county commissioners in the field that we are hunting for more county commissioners. No one working in the media in Kenya should feel frustrated or should have any problem working in the Country.”
On the other hand, Information and Communications CS, Joe Mucheru, told the County commissioners to work closely with media agencies.
