The Kenya Private Security Regulation Bill 2014

07 July 2015

This submission to the Kenya National Assembly's Administration and National Security Committee analyses the Private Security Regulation Bill 2014. The Bill seeks to provide a framework for the regulation of private security industry and ensure that private security service providers 'operate efficiently in accordance with the principles of good governance and sound commercial principles'.

The Bill includes a number of welcomed references to human rights, such as ensuring that the exercise of the powers of arrest does not infringe on rights and provisions on the human rights of those employed in the industry.  

This IHRB submission to the Kenya National Assembly's Administration and National Security Committee analyses select provisions of the Bill that require further enhancement in order to integrate human rights standards and ensure greater respect for human rights and accountability.
