The Tana River county government has successfully trained 165 County Inspectorate Officers who will be deployed to serve in law enforcement duties.
The officers will be tasked with urban traffic management, health standards enforcement, licensing and security service sectors.
The inspectorate officers will work alongside tax officials and sub-county administrators in enforcing local tax, hygiene and environmental policies, according to a briefing by a source at Governor Hussein Dado's office.
Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, whose county staff trained the Tana River cadre, presided over the passing-out parade marking the officers' graduation along with Governor Dado on Thursday.
"This is the true embodiment of spirit of The Jumuia ya County za Pwani where all the member counties capitalize on each other’s strengths and share resources to improve the livelihood of our people," Joho said after the parade.
Governor Dado said that the graduation marked a milestone for the local administration which he promised will be more effective in providing services.
