The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is in the process of recruiting a special team of officers from the General Service Unit (GSU) and the Anti-Stock Theft Unit (ASTU) in a move that will see the formation of an Operations Support Unit.

In a letter dated November 17, 2022, addressed to both the deputy Inspector Generals in charge of the administration and regular police services, DCI Director Mohamed Amin requested the heads to shortlist 50 candidates from each of the aforesaid units for deployment to the special team.

In a move that appears aimed at tapping diligent officers, Amin also set the criteria for the new talent he is looking to incorporate into the DCI.

The officers are, at the very least, required to have served in the police force for a minimum of 5 years, with no disciplinary record for the last 3 years.

They must also have fully passed the police law examination, be below 40 years, and have above-average shooting skills.

Selected officers will serve in the operations support unit after being further interviewed with the DCI inclined towards disciplined and professional candidates.

The move follows the disbandment of two specialised units formed by former DCI Director George Kinoti; the Special Service Unit (SSU) and the Anti-Counterfeit unit.
