The current force was established as a British colonial police force in 1907. From the 1887 to 1902 policing was provided by the East Africa Trading Company (after 1902 the Kenya-Uganda Railway introduced their police units as well).[5]

In 1906 the Police Ordinance was established to create a new force in 1907 and the current force's name came into effect in 1920. The colonial force was made up mainly of British and Indian recruits as senior officers and Africans amongst lower ranks.[5]

Following Kenya's independence, the British officers were replaced with local Kenyan members.
