    Others who joined the senior assistant inspector general rank are GSU Commandant Douglas Kanja, Director of Police Operations Henry Barmao, the Head of Anti-Stock Theft Unit Joseph Kodi and the Head of Investigations at the DCI headquarters John Kariuki.

    Some of the officers were promoted to the rank of Assistant Inspector General (AIG).

    The officers included Railways and Port Police commandant Rono Bunei, the Kenya Airports Police Unit Commandant Titus Karuri and Kiganjo Police College Deputy Commandant Gabriel Musau among others.

    During the briefing, the IG further made announcements reminding the public that OCSs were now referred to as police commanders.

    OCPDs had also changed their titles to sub-county police commanders in line with the police reforms. 

    This promotion comes just days after some senior police officers were moved to the Public Service Commission.
