The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti General has told off politicians who belittle police officers based on their academic qualifications.
The DCI boss termed the recent verbal attacks on police officers as misplaced, wondering why those making fun of police officers who provide security to them.
The DCI chief added that police officers should be congratulated for being emotionally strong, when provoked under such circumstances, while they continued providing their services dutifully.
Kinoti made during the launch for training of 20 million citizens on digital skills, at a function presided over by the Cabinet Secretary for ICT Joe Mucheru, at a city hotel.
He lauded the initiative by the ICT ministry saying it was timely, in the increasingly globalized world that we live in today.
The DCI Chief noted that the Directorate had digitized most of its services and embraced modern day technology in solving crimes, by employing Forensic science in investigation of cases.
This he said had led to the expeditious resolution of crime puzzles that would have hitherto taken long to resolve, placing the Directorate as per with established investigative agencies across the world.
Kinoti said that the Directorate had developed the required human resource capacity including experts in Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, and Mathematics among other scientific fields who are the leading brains behind the improved performance of the Directorate.
