Recent adjustments made to the Kenya Police salary

A move by the National Police Service (NPS) commission has seen the Kenya Police salary and allowances encounter alterations affecting half of the policemen/women’s income. This directive was effected in March 2020.

The NPS lessened administration police salary per month in Kenya, with graduate compensation shifting from Ksh. 36,000 to Ksh. 18,000.

Before these salary changes, which likewise included imposing a tax on disabled officers, graduate constables earned a basic salary equivalent to a non-graduate inspector. At the same time, inspectors earned higher stipends as a result of their rank.
