Tuesday, November 15, 2022 – Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome has made changes in the Police Service that saw Baringo county police commander Adamson Bungei named the new Nairobi police chief.

Judy Lamet who was the director of the Child Protection Unit at Vigilance House was promoted to the deputy director of police operations.
Jacinta Muthoni was named the director of personnel at police headquarters, Vigilance House.
The changes are the latest to be effected by Koome.
