Arachi’s Dream Changer

SOC_7868Working  from his Jogoo House office in Nairobi, Mr. Samuel Arachi, Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Administration Police Service (APS), has his eyes set on Kenya’s security. Through the APS structure and command, he gets to know the state of security in the country and issues that need sorting. Mr. Arachi takes routine briefs from regional commanders and he oversees the coordination of directorates at the APS headquarters. This includes information that comes through the APS own operations and intelligence gathering nerve centre located at the headquarters. The Administration Police Service (APS) has a wide spread network of personnel, in the county Sub county and more than 2,500 outposts, providing administration and operation support to the mwananchi. APS is unrivaled by any other government agency as almost 75 percent of the personnel are working at outposts, the local level point of service delivery. These are backed up by five units that are operation-based to support the counties. In addition are three training formations to provide administrative, training and operation support to the APS personnel.  “You will not see an officer with a torn uniform and you can’t miss a branded APS vehicle on patrol in a town near you. With the right mind set, skills and equipment, the future of Kenya’s security is safe,” Mr. Arachi says. Mr. Fred Mwei, the Principal Deputy to the Deputy Inspector General APS, adds that, the ability of APS officers to blend well and understand their role in dealing with threat to peace and security; whether by interdiction, affiliation, preventive measures or intelligence; is a competence you do not find in any other agency. Another component of the APS is the ability to use equipment. The officers do not have sophistication with equipment, but their ability to innovate with what they have and be able to deliver what would be good quality services makes them stick out of the others. Training is part and parcel of what we do, and we must keep on training – in and out,” Mr. Arachi states. The APS training focuses on three tenets: individual police officers’ understanding of their role in securing the country; how to be managers, and how to be effective administrators. APS training is paramilitary, implying that, it is a notch lower than the full military training.  Read More
