URBAN VIOLENCE IN NAKURU COUNTY, KENYA (Summary report)
The present study, commissioned by DIGNITY, is the first of its kind as it focuses on urban violence in Nakuru County. It provides new knowledge that will inform the design of a three- year multi-stakeholder urban violence program in selected areas of the county. The study was conducted in five sites across Nakuru County: Bondeni and Kaptembwo, Nakuru Town; Karagita and Kabati, Naivasha Town and Molo Town, where urban violence was previously understudied and, therefore, not well understood.

This was to be achieved through building the capacity of police officers in the four selected police stations on police reforms, peacebuilding and violence against women and girls policies to ensure effective handling and response of cases; strengthening the relationship between community members and the police in the four selected police station jurisdictions by increasing community member’s trust and confidence in the National Police Service; thereby contributing to a reduction in violence in the community.
