The course is organised by Kazakhstan’s OSCE Chairmanship together with Strategic Police Matters Unit. It is specifically designed for police officers from Afghanistan who will subsequently train and instruct their peers.
Ten Afghan police officers will take part in counter-narcotics training course in Almaty, Kazakhstan on 1-13 November 2010.
Participants of the two-week “train-the-trainers” course will do practical exercises; learn how to plan and organise drugs search operations, as well as how to employ modern training methods in their work. The officers will look at the entire process of prosecuting drugs-related criminal cases — from police investigation to the courtroom.
The training project was developed and financed by Chairmanship in accordance with its priority on assistance to Afghanistan and in response to an OSCE Ministerial Council decision adopted in Madrid in 2007 on enhancing engagement with Afghanistan, an OSCE Partner for Co-operation.
