Elizabeth Nyaruai served as Kenya's first female police officer. On an 89 acre tract of land that President Jomo Kenyatta gifted her in the late 1960s, Nyaruai lives by alone in a mud hut in the semi-arid areas of Nyeri South District.
Nyaruai was brought up on a farm owned by white settlers where her father was a herds boy. In 1927, she was born there.
She is recognized as the first female County Police Commander in Kenya, where she has worked as a police officer for a considerable amount of time.
Nyaruai became acquainted with Lord Baden-Powell, who founded scouting. She will participate in festivities to commemorate the 100th anniversary of scouting at his grave in 2007.
Kenya Police Service, a government agency, is in charge of maintaining order in Kenya. It is under the control of the Inspector General of Police, as opposed to the National Police Service, which is run independently. Kenya Police is under the deputy inspector general's control.
