KFS is committed to ensuring that the security of its customers, staff and other stakeholders is guaranteed. In pursuing this goal, the Company has put in place elaborate security measures and systems intended to address the security challenges it faces
The company contracts services of reputable security firms who provide well trained security guards deployed in all strategic places within our premises to ensure KFS security procedures are enforced to the latter. The Company is also working in collaboration with the National Police Service who maintain law and order within the KFS operation area. To this end, the Company has constructed Ferry Police station on the island side to ease administration. We also maintain a close working relationship with the Kenya Navy.
Since the Company’s core business is concentrated within the larger Port area, KFS is categorized as a Port facility. Consequently, it is subject to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations regarding Port facilities security. The Kenya Maritime Authority (KMA), which is the local enforcement agency, assesses and certifies the facility’s security plan which is developed and reviewed after every four years as required by the International Ship and Port facility Security (ISPS) code.
