The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) in collaboration with Securexpo East Africa will deliver the 2021 Kenya OSPAs virtually as part of a Thought Leadership Webinar:

Thinking about outstanding security in Kenya: what are the barriers to making further improvements?

Previous webinars have indicated that around the world countries face very different challenges in having a professional security sector, one that workers choose as a preferred career of choice, one clients’ view in favourable terms, and one that partners such as the police want to collaborate with. We also know from previous webinars on Kenya that the sector has its own challenges although there was optimism that the aftermath of the pandemic may provide a new era in which security personnel will fare better. This webinar will discuss:

• What are the main challenges facing the Kenya security sector?
• The post pandemic experience, what is anything has changed?
• The routes to a more professional sector, specifically what needs to change?
