ANP Training Responsibilities Transferred
"The development and approval of Afghan National Police (ANP) training courses are now under Afghan ownership as of 26 November 2014. Under the framework of the recurring Professional Development Board (PDB) a memorandum of understanding was signed by representatives of EUPOL, German Police Project Team (GPPT), NATO Training Mission - Afghanistan (NTM-A), and ANP General Training Command (GTC). With this memorandum the international community handed over the responsibility and decision making about ANP training course to Afghan authorities. The international representatives of the PDB will now take the role of advising and support towards the Afghan authorities in their work to provide adequate training courses to the police. In the PDB the Afghan authorities will now decide about newly designed and developed training courses and give official approval to them. The approved courses can then be taught across the country according to the same standards." (Text above taken from EUPOL news release, November 2014).
