Community Policing Key in War on Terror

Community Policing Key in War on Terror

Acting Garissa County Commissioner Stephen Orinde has urged the security officers to work harmoniously with the local communities, their elders and the political and religious leadership in the area so as to succeed in the fight against terror.

Commissioner Stephen Orinde said the Garissa University attack has revealed the determination of terrorists who want to disrupt peace in the country.

“The government should not be deterred by those calling for the withdrawal of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops from Somalia for it will not be a solution to security challenges, and if done, it will be tantamount to conceding terrorists’ demands,” Orinde said.


According to the senior deputy commissioner of prisons, Florence Omondi, the country will not relent on its war on terrorism.

She further urged parents to keep an eye on the movement of their children, their activities and the friends they keep.

She added that parents need to have knowledge about the learning institutions their children were attending to ensure they are not recruited into outlawed local or international groups with sinister motives.
