Thirteen senior Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers have been moved in a reshuffle.
Five of the officers affected by the changes effected by DCI boss George Kinoti (pictured) are from the Police Training Academy.
The officers have been moved from the police academy after the institution changed hands from the police to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Former Kiambu DCI boss Jeremiah Ikiao has been promoted to be Eastern region DCI boss. He takes over from Jonah Kirui who was moved to Western region.
