The UK Government is working to support the Kenyan authorities in our shared aim of reducing the threat from terrorism. Our support enhances Kenya's capability to disrupt terrorist threats, gather evidence and make arrests. We do not provide direct funding to the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit, but support capacity building in investigative skills, operations management, forensics and evidence recovery as well as infrastructure. Respect for human rights and adherence to the law form key components of all our engagement.
