Police Boss Asks Citizens To Arrest Criminals Instead Of Just Watching Them
Due to the increased crime rates which have coasted life of many innocent people, police bosses in Nakuru county have asked citizens to arrest the criminals instead of just doing nothing because these crimes are conducted in the broad daylight while people are watching.
Peter Mwanzo, who is the police boss at Nakuru county has said that people can take advantage of criminals due to their huge number. While speaking with Kenyan.co.ke news, Mwanzo had this to say.
"You cannot watch as your fellow Kenyan is being attacked because today it is him or her and tomorrow it will be you. Help the victim and chase after the thief so that he does not harm someone else," Mwanzo stated.
The county police boss admitted that the police officer to members of the public ratio is not at global standards and asked Kenyans to help the cop's arrest perpetrators of crime.
"The law allows citizens to arrest criminals under the Arrest By Members of the Public clause. They can arrest them and bring them to the police because we are not gods, we cannot be everywhere," he explained.
