A photographic trip down memory lane that shows all the police commissioners who have served or held jurisdiction within the Kenyan borders ever since the colonization era right (1886 to 1st June 1963) down to the most recent commissioner. The police service has always been the force to maintain law and order in a territory. The commissioners are the chiefs of the police unit. They are in charge of the order and an important factor for the stability of the system.
