The head of Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti is set to undergo a special training in the United States.
Kinoti traveled to the US last week ahead of a Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) executive training.
He is the only top detective from Africa who will undertake the three-week high-level training at the National Executive Institute (NEI). He will be trained alongside four other detectives drawn from Canada and Australia.
The five will be trained on strategic leadership development and current affairs by a team of at least 15 top FBI officials.
The first phase of the training, taking two weeks, will be done in Washington while the final part of the course will be taken in Glasgow, Scotland.
“NEI consists of three one-week training sessions throughout the year. Two of the sessions are hosted by the FBI Academy; the third is typically conducted overseas in concert with our global partners,” NEI's website states.
“One of the most valuable aspects of NEI is the range and diversity of the executives, who bring immensely different levels of experience and perspectives.”
