Njoroge noted that though NPS respects the freedom of worship, police found preaching in official regalia will face administrative action.
“Officers are encouraged to separate official duties and private engagement and act appropriately. Wearing of uniform in worship areas will be allowed only during the discipline services thanksgiving service,” read the memo in part.
Police officers across the country have been holding crusade meetings and others preaching while in uniform a thing that will come to an end with the implementation of the memo.
He asked police commanders to warn officers under their command from breaching the directive otherwise administrative action will be taken against them.
Njoroge further said that even though the National Police Service respects the freedom of worship of all officers, preaching in uniform will not be condoned.
