The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday issued a statement to all those seeking Police Clearance Certificates.
Through a tweet, the DCI confirmed the arrest of a cyber cafÃ© attendant who was printing fake forms, warning that all those engaging in the criminal activity will be dealt with accordingly.
â€œ#DCI Detectives today (Monday) afternoon arrested a Cyber Cafe Attendant who was found making fake Police Clearance Certificates.
â€œThe suspect who is currently in lawful custody will be arraigned in court tomorrow (Tuesday) to face charges of making documents without Authority,â€ read the tweet.
Employers were also urged to stay vigilant and always seek confirmation when they have doubts about a potential employeeâ€™s credentials.
â€œThe Director @DCI_Kenya takes this opportunity to warn members of the public who engage in such criminal activities and to request potential employers to always confirm with us in case of doubt,â€ said the DCI.
A Certificate of Good Conduct has become one of the must-have documents when applying for a job and is essentially a search into an individualâ€™s records.
It confirms that the holder has not engaged in any criminal activity in the preceding six months and has not served any jail time for a crime.
To apply, one is required to have an original identification card and proceed to the DCI offices where fingerprints are taken.
There is also a processing fee of Sh1050.
