Reservist helps train Afghan Police
Territorial Army soldier Lance Corporal Aiden Cooper is currently working with the Afghan Uniform Police to help nurture an efficient police force who can maintain the security of the country themselves.
Twenty-year-old Lance Corporal Aiden Cooper, from 253 Provost Company of the Royal Military Police, based in Southampton, is working with the Afghan Uniform Police (AUP) in Lashkar Gah as a police advisor, along with a group of soldiers from the Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment. He said:
“We operate in Lashkar Gah and get out to checkpoints, advising on police matters as well as lifesaving skills they use out on the ground.
“All the policemen have different abilities and skills, so we need to establish what level they’re at before we can conduct training with them. We also watch the progress that is being made in their skills as well.”
