Kilimani gets five police patrol cars

The Chinese business community in Kilimani has donated five police cars to Kilimani police.

Area Police boss Peter Kattam, said the five vehicles would be used by officers in Kilimani, Kileleshwa and Capital Hill police stations.

The OCDP however said the cars alone would not lead to eradication of crime and called for greater cooperation between the residents and law enforcers.

Speaking during a community policing day at the Kilimani Police Station, Mr Kattam asked the residents to report suspicious-looking people to the police.

Mr Kattam asked the residents to mark their property and keep the serial numbers of their phones and  other electronics for easy tracking and identification in case of theft.

The area has in the past been commended by the police for its community policing movement.

Nairobi Deputy Traffic commandant Leonard Katana everyone should operate within the law for the good of society.

During the Saturday event, residents were taken through the operations of a police station.

They were tipped on how to ensure they were safe from carjackers and muggers.

The day featured prayers, gifts to officers, 7-aside football, community dialogues and media interviews.

The police community day was sponsored by local businesses.

The Kilimani Association is one of the most vibrant community organisations in the city.
