Noor Gabow

Hailed as one of the most revered security officers, Noor Gabow is the Deputy Inspector General of the Administration Police Service. 

The distinguished officer's vast experience in the role stretches to over three decades. Prior to his current role as the Deputy IG, he served as the Commandant of the Kenya Police College. 

Gabow was enlisted in the police service in 1989 and was promoted to Assistant IG a few years later. The officer made history by becoming the first Kenya Police Service Officer to head Administrative police in 2018. 

The DIG holds a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Penology from the UK-based International Academy Bramshill of the National Police Improvement Agency (IAB NPIA). He also has a Master's of Governance, Peace, and Security Studies. 

Gabow was key in restoring order during the chaos that erupted at the Bomas of Kenya auditorium during the announcement of the presidential election. 

In addition, he took up the acting role of the Inspector General after its predecessor Hilary Mutyambai took a break over a medical emergency. 

During his short tenure, Gabow reshuffled the DCI in a bid to streamline the services at the Directorate.
