A nation has security when it has the ability to preserve the nation’s physical integrity and territory, to maintain its economic relations with the rest of the world on reasonable terms, to preserve its nature, institutions and governance against disruption from outside; and control its borders since national Security of any nation is the epitome of development and prosperity. This has been given little focus on Kenya borders making them porous. It’s on this grounds that the study endeavored to assess trans-border surveillance strategies on national security at Isebania. Decision theory and Complexity Leadership theory were used as spring board to the study. The research employed mixed methods of research where survey research design was key. We utilized random sampling technique on a target population that comprised of 980 persons (800 business persons, 70 village elders, 60 border Officers, 43 Police Officers, 6 Chiefs and 1 Assistant county commissioner. According to Mugenda (2008), the study considered a 30% of each category of sample population and this yielded to 294 as the sample size for the study. Interview, Questionnaires, and Focus group discussion tools were used to collect data from the respondents. Data was analyzed by use of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 25. Results were presented in form of frequency tables, charts and graphs. Results indicated that there was a strong need to improve technology usage at Isebania trans-border. Respondents were not aware of image recognition technology and that radio frequency was not being used at trans-border to detect explosives. From the study findings, the study recommends that modern and effective technology needs to be adopted at the border and qualified personnel also deployed to manage the same.
