According to 2016-2017 budget estimates released by the Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, the government is set to invest heavily in the security sector, with special focus on improving welfare, mobilisation and modernisation of the security forces in the country.
To modernize the security sector in the country even further, the CS allocated Sh124 billion to defense and the National Intelligence Service and Sh140 billion to the Interior Ministry.
“The people of Nairobi and Coast may have by now noticed the surveillance cameras installed in strategic points in Nairobi and Mombasa. These security surveillance systems provide real time footage to the National Police Operation Centre, enabling security agencies to monitor and detect crime,” he said.
Rotich said the continued project on street lighting has helped in the drastic drop in cases of crime; a project he says will be launched in all parts of the country.
