    KABUL, Afghanistan — The Operational Coordination Centre Provincial in Uruzgan province in southern Afghanistan, opened its doors, July 9, providing the people of Uruzgan an efficient way to contact local authorities.

    Afghan national security forces staff the newly opened OCC-P, while European Union police and members of International Security Assistance Force provide mentorship and training to OCC-P staff. In the event of medical emergencies, aggression by insurgents against the local population, or other situations, people can call the OCC-P or visit in person. Staff at the OCC-P will coordinate a response, and deal with the situation.

    The establishment of OCC-Ps in Afghanistan is an important step toward improving the safety and security of the people of Afghanistan. This new centre, along with other security efforts underway, will help bring stability to the Tarin Kowt area in advance of national elections, Aug. 20.
