POLICE REFORMS
Security is a basic human right. This is underlined by Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As a member of the family of nations, Kenya subscribes to this Declaration. As a country, we regard security as a matter of national priority.

Security of person's as a basic human right, is also one of the most significant factors contributing to the quality of communities worldwide. Security provides an enabling environment for citizens to live and work in, and it stimulates social, economic and political development.

Kenya's transition, and prospects of development, hinge to a great extent on the country's ability to guarantee security within her borders. This is a goal that the current Government is committed to attain. It is also a good that many Kenyan's are longing for.

In this regard, the Government has made some important steps. A task force appointed in March 2003 is drawing a road map for the Police Reforms. The Commissioner of Police is committed to a Police Force whose members are motivated, people friendly, open, relaxed and honest with one another and the public; know their role and mandate and be proud of their job; appreciated by the public…

The just concluded Constitutional review holds a promise for the establishment of an emancipated Police Service, that will operate in conformity with democratic transformation from the current practice of Regime Policing to Democratic Policing (Community Policing)

These measures augur well with the Police Reforms as well as the goodwill of citizens. An international survey conducted in January 2003 placed Kenyan's as the most optimistic citizens in the world. The Government will do well to tap into this optimism. It is the energy that will drive the nation's transformation to Its desired destination.

For citizen's security:this is the moment.
