International Coordination Board to Assist Afghan Police

In an effort to improve international coordination of Afghan National Police training, the United States, the United Nations and the European Union have agreed with the Afghan government to introduce common standards. As a result, the different methods of training previously adopted by the United States, Germany and other countries will be put under a single new authority: the International Police Coordination Board Secretariat, based in Kabul. The International Police Coordination Board Secretariat was also working closely with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force.

This unified body will be able to train police more efficiently and professionally, with the goal of empowering the Afghan security forces to protect the local population. Police trainers have increased from 50 to 200, and new classes focus on counter-terrorism, counter-narcotics, and civil rights.
