“Your country’s effort in coming together for this campaign made it an even more humbling experience. Congratulations to our SUMURI Gives Back Runner Up – DIGITAL FORENSICS UNIT, KENYA! You too will receive a TALINO workstation to help your team save more lives.”
The DCI, on its part expressed gratitude, to the Kenyan public for their support, further congratulating the Henry County Police Department on their win.
“Thank you everyone for your support,” said the DCI, adding ”When we come together for a good cause, great things do happen.”
