Kenya Deploys 100 National Police Reservists To Boost Security In Wajir County

Kenya has deployed one hundred national police reservists (NPR) along the border of Wajir East and Tarbaj sub-Counties in a bid to boost security. The officers will boost the security in the area by patrolling in the schools and areas along Kenya’s border with Somalia.

The deployment was majorly fueled by the increased attacks along the porous border by the al Shabaab militants, especially on civilian targets. The well-armed officers will provide support to the already active security agencies in the region.

Kenya’s security framework uses police reservists to boost security and help other law enforcing agencies, especially in rural areas. Wajir has been earmarked as among the most insecure regions with the greatest risk posed by the Al Qaeda affiliate based in Somalia, Al shabaab.
