On Wednesday, Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Director Mr George Kinoti chaired a high level meeting with Senior Detectives from the United Kingdom’s Counter Terrorism Command (CTC) to discuss drawing up a route map for the construction of a building to be used as a base for counter terrorism detectives in the Coast region.

Also known as SO15, CTC is a Specialist Operations branch within London’s Metroplitan Police Service. It was established after merging the UK’s Anti-Terrorist Branch (SO13) and Special Branch (SO12) in October 2006, bringing together intelligence, operations and investigative functions to form a single command.

Attendees at Wednesday’s meeting included Directors from DCI HQs along with Regional and County Police Commanders.
