Kenya tackles crime with community policing

Government suggests that citizens report suspicious incidents through meetings chaired by village elders.

    The Kenyan government has been looking for new ways to identify suspected criminals.

    There has been much pressure on government to increase security after the Westgate Mall siege in September.

    Now, the government is turning to traditional community policing.
