Governors will no longer use police chase cars to move from one place to another, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has said.

In a letter addressed to all regional county commanders, Boinnet warned that disciplinary action will be taken against any officer who goes against the directive.

“The police headquarters has noted with a lot of concern that police vehicles and police officers are escorting county government officials across the country and sometimes clearing roads for them at the expense of inconveniencing other road users. This must never occur again,” He said.

He has also warned county government officials against using the wrong side of the road.

“Besides the presidency all other protocols regarding chase cars and escorts are done as directed be the ministry of foreign affairs,” He added.
