Jane Chege was on Friday morning sworn in as the
representative of the Public Service Commission in a task force to oversee
reforms for members of the National Police Service and Kenya Prisons Service.
The swearing-in ceremony was presided by Chief Justice Martha Koome.
The work of the Taskforce will serve to catalyse effective service delivery by these two institutions that are crucial for the enforcement of law and security within our country.
“Indeed, our criminal justice sector cannot function effectively when our men and women in the police service and prisons service are not motivated and enabled with a conducive environment to discharge their mandate," CJ Koome said.
The taskforce chaired by former Chief Justice David Maraga was appointed by President William Ruto to oversee the improvement of reforms for members of the National Police Service and Kenya Prisons Service.
Other members in the taskforce include; Moffat Muriithi Kangi, John Ole Moyaki, Ibrahim Jillo Guyo, Richard Kirundi, Elizabeth Mueni, and Roseline Odede.
Others are Joash Odhiambo Dache, Doreen Muthaura, Albert Mwenda, Terry Chebet Maina, Hassan Sheikh Mohamed, Simiyu Werunga, Mutuma Ruteere, Anne Ireri, Stephen Kayongo, Jafaar Mohamed and Sammy Chepkwony.
The task force is mandated to identify the legal, policy, administrative, institutional and operational constraints on effective service delivery by NPS and KPS.
"Identify and recommend legal, policy, administrative, institutional and operational reforms in the NPS and KPS for effective service delivery," said President Ruto.
