The narcotics underworld remains a threat to global peace with cocaine and heroin being the most trafficked globally.
This according to British High Commission Home Office International Operations Director Nick Fowler who led a delegation of his officers in a courtesy call to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Mohamed Amin.
During the meeting, the two heads discussed areas of cooperation in fighting trafficking of narcotics.
Fowler called upon all concerned agencies to share intelligence and endeavor to break the supply chain of narcotics at the points of origin.
To boost the DCI's Anti-Narcotics Unit's capacity to detect peddlers, the United Kingdom government donated two portable X-ray scanners, for use in mobile operations on such places as houses and offices, vehicle cabins and compartments,suitcases, walls and underneath carpets to detect concealed drugs.
Thanking the British High Commission for being reliable partners in security matters, Amin assured the delegation that the Directorate was keen on dealing with traffickers, with the previously acquired body scanners coming in handy in detecting peddlers at the ports.
Amin further expressed optimism in the multi-agency approach that the Kenyan security teams have adopted, saying that basic investigation training on all the players would further boost the country's capacity to suppress offenders.
Fowler was accompanied by his assistant Richard Lloyd, the Regional Manager Tara Moore, Country Manager Matt Jenkins and Rani Matharu.
