Why I regret becoming a police officer

An Eldoret-based police constable shocked the vetting panel on Tuesday when he revealed that if given another chance he would never work as a law enforcement officer.

Constable Denis Moss Kirui said that if he were to go back to the age of 18 years, he would choose a different career path from the police service.

When commissioner Mary Owuor, who was chairing the panel asked the reason behind his sentiments, the officer said that he had encountered a lot of challenges while in the service especially while on operation areas.


He cited frequent transfers to different parts of the country as one of the challenges to the education of his children.

“I have children who are in school and the many transfers affect their education as I have to keep moving,” he said.

On her part Commissioner Owuor told the officer that all sectors have their own challenges and it only depends on the attitude.

“Anything in the world can be a challenge including taking a glass of water, it could choke you as yo take it,” she said.
