– Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was nominated for high end forensic workstation award
– For the past one week, it had been appealing to Kenyans to vote for it to bring the award home
– The voting closed on Saturday, December 21, and the DCI emerged second in the race
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has lost the battle for prestigious Sumuri Talino Forensic Workstation award to US-based Henry County Police Department.
The investigative body emerged second despite taking an early lead in the online tally.
The DCI has been appealing to Kenyans on social media to turn up and vote for it given it was the only agency that was nominated for the award outside the United States (US).
Other agencies that were nominated for the award included US police departments Henry County Police Department, Elkton Police Department, Washington Police Department and Philadelphia Police Department.
“Directorate of Criminal Investigations and National Police Service in its entirety wishes to thank you most humbly for heeding to our call and voting for us overwhelmingly,
“The final online tally declares Henry County Police Department as the winners with DCI closing in second in a very tight race that saw us leading the tally the whole of yesterday,” the DCI tweeted.
