The Independent Policing Oversight Authority will monitor Thursday’s recruitment of 10,000 police recruits to ensure it is corruption free.
The authority wants the public to call 0741-423-191 and 0786- 824-426 to report any malpractices spotted.
These numbers will be operational from 0600hrsto 2200hrs up to Saturday.
“The work of professionalizing the Police must start at the recruitment stage, IPOA will partner with the National Police Service Commission and the IGs office as an independent monitor to the recruitment process,”said the authority in a statement.
The authority said professionalism, accountability and transparency are attributes and practices that have to be inculcated and practiced by all actors from the point of recruitment of an officer all the way to their retirement.
“The manner in which officers are recruited is therefore a key component of policing which IPOA is keen to ensure is done transparently and in a manner that is accountable to the public.
” Spokesman Dennis Oketch said they will monitor the extent to which the National Police Service Commission (Recruitment and Appointment) Regulations, 2015 will be observed during the exercise.
