Kenya Institute of Security and Criminal Justice (KISCJ)

Nairobi - County


Kenya Institute of Security and Criminal Justice (KICJ) started in the year 2002 to train Security, Criminology and Forensic Investigation programs.

The vision bearer saw a gap in the Criminal Justice System in terms of training. To pave way for the police and other disciplined forces to access education, he came up with programs from Certificate level to Diploma where progressive advancement was possible all the way to the Bachelors's level. Currently, like any other profession, the security industry has greatly improved and has taken its position in terms of authenticity.

The Kenya Institute of Security and Criminal Justice started with 8 students who were pursuing a certificate in Criminology and Forensic Studies in Nairobi.

In 2003, KICJ introduced Diploma programs in various fields.

To date, KICJ boasts of more programs and satellite campuses in Kenya with an ongoing student population of over 2000. The first graduation ceremony was held in 2006 with about 50 students. 8 graduations later, we graduate over 1000 students per graduation.
