British troops and ANP train locals to police Rahim in Nar-e Saraj

It’s a year since plans were announced for a local police force in Afghanistan.  After months of work, some areas of Helmand are starting to see the benefits.

The village of Rahim in Nar-e Saraj opened it’s police station in May and for the last few weeks, British troops have been training members of the community so that they can police the local area.

    Great! This is what it’s all about – enabling the local people to eventually be able to defend themselves. Using their excellent local knowledge to keep out people who shouldn’t be there.
