National Police Service (NPS) has condemned a video clip circulating online of GSU graduands celebrating ahead of their pass out parade on Wednesday.
According to NPS, the remarks made by the officers were reckless and irresponsible and that they do not reflect the values of GSU, KPS and NPS at large.
“Attention of the NPS is drawn to a video clip circulating on social media depicting newly graduated GSU officers recording themselves as they make some irresponsible and reckless remarks.

We wish to clarify and assure the public that the behaviour portrayed in the clip is not acceptable and does not reflect the values of the GSU, KPS and the NPS.
All graduands went through a rigorous value-based training modelled on democratic policing principles and designed to make them responsive and responsible officers of the law at the service of citizens.The oath of allegiance they took as part of their graduation is a testament to the sanctity of their duty to service.” Said NPS
NPS confirms an ongoing internal review with the intention of preferring appropriate action against those caught on tape.
“The remarks as made in the clip are therefore regrettable and stand condemned. An internal review is ongoing with a view of preferring appropriate measures regarding the incident. GSU is renown for its focused training aimed at producing highly disciplined and responsible officers.” Said NPS
