Police officers have great prestige in every community since they are among the most well-respected professionals in the nation.
The government increased the Kenyan police’s pay by 100% in 2015, and until pay cuts started in 2018, it did so in four stages.
Kenya Police salary scale in 2023
F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, and S are the 12 job groups for Kenyan police.
Job group “F” is for police constables with only O-level certificates (or an equivalent KCSE mean grade), while job group “J” is for those with degrees.
However, due to their early recruitment into the force before the government’s new criteria were put into place, some police personnel in high-profile posts lack a degree.
What is the Kenya Police’s base pay? Kenyan police positions and wages for 2023 are listed below:
|Inspector General of Police||Ksh 852,241|
