ISAF train Afghan Police in Logar Province

A new group of Afghan National Police (ANP) soldiers start basic training at Forward Operations Base (FOB) Shank in Logar province. The training is given jointly by ISAF and Afghan instructors.

The two-week training provides ANP newcomers with general work knowledge, preparing them for the daily duty in their service to the Afghan nation.
The training includes first-aid treatment, tactics, patrolling, weapons training and vehicle check point procedures as well as practical exercises during which ANP ambush by opposition forces are simulated.

The provision of mentoring and training to the ANP is one of ISAF’s key military tasks.
