Community Policing Helps Reduce Crimes in Nakuru

Mid-Rift Human Rights Network, programs director Mr Walter Mwania said community policing has helped in enhancing accountability raising police – public trust.

Crime in Nakuru town has reduced drastically thanks to the community policing initiative.

Nakuru OCPD Samuel Obara says enhanced working relationship between the police and the community has helped in taming the crime wave in both Nakuru East and West sub-counties.

The OCPD cited the outlawed Confirm Group which he said is almost subdued something he attributed to the good cooperation between his officers and the public.

Mr Obara affirmed that the community policing has enabled members of the public to build confidence in the police force unlike before.

“Members of the public are now sharing information freely with the police. We have guaranteed their privacy thus the confidence,” he said.

Mid-Rift Human Rights Network, programs director Mr Walter Mwania said community policing has helped in enhancing accountability raising police – public trust.

“The community policing committees do not only report cases or give information to the police but they also follow up to ensure that the police take action and this has forced police officers to be more accountable,” said Mwania.

The two spoke during a training forum for community policing committee members from Nakuru Town East.
