The National Police Service has excluded degree holders from its latest recruitment drive

Degree holders have been barred from the National Police Service’s newest recruiting campaign, which begins tomorrow and aims to hire 5,000 additional constables. The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) stated that it has learned from previous failures in enlisting university graduates, which resulted in wage disputes. NPSC official John ole Moyaki said the latest hiring drive targets, non-degree holders, during a pre-recruitment sensitization workshop in Kabarnet on Monday.

“We have indicated in the advertisements placed in various media platforms that we are recruiting police constables with a minimum qualification of D+ in their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education [KCSE] exam, and this remains the case because the advertised positions are in a specific job group.” To minimize labor concerns, we are recommending those with degrees to wait for alternative opportunities,” stated commissioner Moyaki. “We are not discouraging graduates from joining the police force; nonetheless, there are better possibilities and higher job categories available to them.” “It would be fantastic if potential recruits followed the parameters outlined in our ad,” he said.
More than 1,000 graduate police officers protested a decision to reduce their pay last year. Graduate recruits, who were assigned to job Group J as police inspectors, were surprised to earn Group F salaries, which are provided to police constables. According to the officers’ November payslips, around Sh30,000 had been deducted from their salaries. They said that the Inspector-General (IG) of Police Hillary Mutyambai’s instruction to reduce their salary had resulted in them earning negative income.
