Afghan National Police makes progress in Tarin Kowt


KABUL, Afghanistan - For the first time, the Afghan National Police in Tarin Kowt trained alongside the Dutch Police Mentoring Team. The exercise at the headquarters of the district gave the mentoring team the opportunity to speak to Police commander Musa Khan.

The team leader of the Police Mentoring Team in Tarin Kowt, Sergeant First Class Roy, spoke highly about the cooperation with the Afghan National Police.

“There is definitely progress. The headquarters looks really good and there are enough policemen present to make a difference in this area,” he said. “They are all dressed in the same uniforms and are well equipped for the task.  Although we as a team have to improvise sometimes, I am very positive about the future.”
