    DCI announces vacancies for more staff in intelligence wing

    The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is seeking to recruit more personnel to join its intelligence unit in efforts to fight and contain crime in the country.

    The targeted personnel will join the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB), which is based at the DCI headquarters.

    The bureau also has branches in all regions, Counties, and subcounties that coordinate with the headquarters for various crime-related operations.

    Police headquarters sent a memo to all commanders asking all officers of the rank of Chief Inspector and below to are qualified to apply to the DCI for possible recruitment.

    Those needed must be serving police officers and had attained a grade of C plain in either Swahili or English and an overall mean grade of C plain in their KCSE.

    The candidates must be below 40, passed the police law examination, have no disciplinary case, have good drafting skills, and possess good communication skills.

    “Diploma/degree holders in information technology or any other related field and valid driving license will have an added advantage,” the memo dated February 7 said.

    This comes amid changes at the unit. The unit has acquired more modern equipment to enhance its operations at large, insiders said.

    The new unit head is the former Counter Violent Extremism (CVE) director at the DCI Dennis Okadapau.

    Okadapau takes over from John Onyango who was last week promoted and named the deputy DCI.

    Formerly known as Criminal Intelligence Unit, the unit is crucial in the war on crime. It was formed as a result of the need to have a centralized unit that profiles offenders and provides advisory.

    Its main mandate includes offender profiling and crime.

    It collects crime data from all over the country and stores it in a database, identifies crime patterns and trends and researches on the same to advise the stakeholders and provide a link between investigative units in the country to enable them to share criminal data among themselves.

    It also integrates with other government data repositories to enrich the offender profiling process and liaise with investigative and operational units by providing analytical assistance.

    Police say the unit has been helpful in the war on crime as it also liaises with other government agencies in their mandate.

    It works under the DCI Mohamed Amin.
