For the successful growth of the project, we invite community members to participate in the TCP1 Community (policing) Project in any way that is most suitable for them. The services of the project are available for everyone in the community. We welcome your suggestions and comments that will help the project better serve the community.

The above information reflects the work of TCP1 and does not reflect the records of the local police authorities. It is important to note that the local police authorities respond to incidents independent of the community policing project. However the above TCP1 activities were carried out in partnership with The Kenya Police.
