    NINEVAH, Iraq - Iraqis continue to take a stand for freedom and security. In northern Iraq, thirty-six Iraqis graduated from an advanced police course on May 7 and in doing so made a promise to build a stronger Iraq.

    According to Sgt. James Allen, service battery, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Field Artillery, the advanced course followed other training the police went through.

    "They go through a couple courses in Jordan," said Allen, a native of Vicksburg, Miss.

    "Detainee operations is a good thing they go through. Building clearing is very effective here. [Traffic control point operations] is one of the most important things they'll learn because 90 percent of the time that's what they'll be doing."

    The 10-day course covered a range of tasks. The IPs learned how to perform first aid and evaluate a casualty. They learned tactics, including cordons, patrols, react to small-arms fire, searching buildings, and other tactics which will help them keep the peace while minimizing danger to themselves.
