"The police service Delivery performance survey 2021 shows that 63 percent of Civilians are satisfied with the services of the police.
About 28 percent of the respondents who disapproved of the service cited bribery, 11 percent inaction and 9% unfriendliness from our officers.
As part of our National Police Service (NPS) reforms, we hope to raise the level of trust in the police officers one step at a time and ensure first rate service to wananchi," said the PS Karanja Kibicho.
Kenyans raised questions on the 63% civilians satisfaction to which most of kenyans feel like the percentage is too high as the service delivery and satisfaction by the police is still below 63% and needs to be improved.
On Facebook user known as Denno Dennis said that, " Which People? We stopped going to police long time ago because of arrogance and corruption I better leave it to God and forget than going to police they molest people mentally."
