Governor Alfred Mutua hands over new police housing units to Police IG Hillary Mutyambai.
The County Government of Machakos has stepped up efforts to provide police officers in the county with better housing facilities as they endeavour to provide security for the residents.

Governor Alfred Mutua said he will also ensure all the police stations within his county are renovated to provide a conducive working environment for the officers.

‘’We will paint and repair the old houses as we revamp all police stations in the Machakos County to bring them to international standards. That way, people will receive good services in clean and modern facilities when they visit police stations,” he said.

The Governor noted that security was an integral point for the county development, therefore police officers welfare should be at the core of the county activities.

“Our men and women in uniform who serve as police officers contribute greatly to the safety and peace of mind that we have as ordinary Kenyans. However, the reality is that for many years, unlike their counterparts in Europe, Australia, Canada, the United States, Brazil, South Africa and other nations, our police officers have not been treated well and fairly,” he posed.

“Police service is reflected in the motivation of our officers. Yes, their salaries have been increased but when you consider that these officers are at the receiving ends of bullets and other ordinance, they are not paid enough,” he said.
