Kenya Police set to receive counseling


The National Police Service set to introduce a new department to cater for the welfare of the security agents.

In a tweet, the commission stated that the new department will be called Nationl Police Service Counseling and Rehabilitation Centre


The job description identified the counsellors’ role as to identify the psychological and stress-related problems of clients, conduct client counselling sessions and keeping records and follow-ups of the officers.

It has been reported that psychological problems have in the past adversely affected police officers leading to suicides.

Early this year a police officer facing terror related charges committed suicide in his house in Nairobi’s Shauri Moyo area.

The body of constable Waiss Abdulaziz Mohammed who was on suspension was found hanging on the frame of his bedroom door on Saturday. He was alone at the time of the incident.

The officer was attached to the National Disaster Management Unit and was on suspension for indiscipline.
