News: 75 Afghan Local Police recruits graduate in Ghazni province
GHAZNI PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Seventy-five Afghan Local Police recruits representing four districts graduated Dec. 5 from the Provincial Training Center in Ghazni.
The graduation expands Afghan National Security Forces presence in the Andar, Giro, Qara Bagh and Ab Band districts.
“Take what you have learned here in training, and go back to your villages and protect your people, your villages, and Afghanistan with your new skills and dedication to duty,” said Capt. Haji Mohammad, Andar police chief, explaining the importance of the ALP program during the graduation ceremony.
Certified Afghan Uniform Police instructors currently train all ALP recruits in Ministry of Interior sponsored facilities. Recruits receive a four-week period of instruction covering basic military tactics, first aid, marksmanship, and human rights classes.
Mohammad was one of several distinguished attendees that included many district and provincial leaders.
