Various forms of assets are very integral to the operations and functionality of the Kenyan security forces. Security assets can be in terms of machines, finances or trained personnel. According to article 239of the constitution, Kenyan security forces includes the Kenya Police, Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) and the National Intelligence Service (NIS). For the NIS not much can be discussed since it is a classified government agency.
For the Kenya Police and KDF, the most important assets are the people. The people are the human capacity trained to do the job, as Kenya's president had mentioned a while ago. Fundamentally speaking, there is no better asset within the security service than the human beings who work there.
Even though Kenyan security forces may have sophisticated security machines and arsenals at their disposal, the human asset still runs and monitors the most complex of procedures within the police force and KDF. Operations such as planning, logistics and counter terrorism intelligence gathering is done by trained human assets.

Because of the unmatched value of human assets within the Kenyan security organs, the government of Kenya has been doing all within its power to ensure that the personnel in uniform are well taken care of. President Kenyatta's administration has been prioritizing on the health and well being of the service men and women, demonstrated when he commissioned a new defence forces referral hospital at Kabete. For the Kenya police, the Government has also been making efforts to improve their housing and working conditions around the country. Counseling services for the security personnel are either operational or are being robustly developed in the country.
