Afghan police take control of new checkpoint
Afghan police have taken control of a newly-built checkpoint in Babaji, Helmand province.
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.
