    KABUL, Afghanistan – Members of the Afghan Border Police and the Ministry of Interior have begun a partnership allowing movement of materials throughout Afghanistan.

    Until recently, MOI’s Transportation Security Brigade had been unable to move the people and equipment they needed. The MOI and Afghan Border Police decided to work together and four days later they completed their first joint mission moving 40 high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles from Kabul to Gardez in the same time it previously took coalition forces to move one HMMWV. The forces have successfully completed several missions moving vehicles and ammunition to other Afghan forces in Herat and Kandahar.

    This new partnership is a first within the local forces and involves minimum coalition involvement. NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan communicates when the equipment is ready and the Afghan Border Police and MOI forces take care of everything from route planning to mission execution.

    Superintendent John Brewer, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, is the senior advisor to the ABP. He said that he has witnessed steady improvement within the ABP and is pleased with the continued progress.
