For the past seven months responsibility for mentoring the Afghan National Police (ANP) in the area has been in the hands of 2nd Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles (2 RGR), who will now return to their base in Brunei.

During this time the ANP have developed significantly, particularly through the continued development of the Lashkar Gah Training Centre, previously known as the Regional Training Centre (South West), which is responsible for ANP recruit training.
