In view of the foregoing, the Government has commenced the mandatory nationwide security vetting, training and licensing of all in-house security officers employed in institutions of higher learning, contracted private security officers, and all officers offering security services, be they employed by the said institutions or otherwise engaged as private security service providers.

In this regard, the Authority has organized a sensitization forum at the Kenya School of Government, Kabete on Thursday, 22nd February 2024 at 8:30 A.M.

The forum is free of charge. However, for ease of planning, you are required to confirm your attendance through email;, and/or through Ms. Sophia Matheka on Telephone No: +254 700 892 475.
