As the Afghan Uniform Police take the lead on crime prevention in Helmand province it is increasingly important that the infrastructure upon which they rely is sustainable post-transition.

The new checkpoint (CP), Samander, has been specially designed and built from local materials, using local methods of construction to enable easy repair.

The handover was attended by local elders, police officers and representatives of the Police Mentoring and Advisory Group, The 1st Battalion Welsh Guards.

    This is a positive notice and is consequential, other than part, of transition phase. This phase is acquiring, day by day, consistency and improvement. This is a concretation of a hope we had and the first step of hopes we have and are called: human rights respect, land patrol and domain, freedom.
