NYPD team in Kabul to share expertise with Afghans

NYPD team in Kabul to share expertise with Afghans

Oct 16, 2017 - 17:57

KABUL (Pajhwok): A New York Police Department (NYPD) delegation has arrived in Kabul to share its expertise with Afghanistan, the president’s security team said on Monday.

A statement from the National Security Council (NSC) said National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar met with the high-level delegation and discussed with them strengthening of Afghanistan police and reforms in the force.

Atmar told the delegation that Afghan police besides ensuring security and public order fought on the frontline against terrorism, something that made the Afghan police unique. “Our police forces have always prevented terrorist activities with great valor.”

Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the NYPD, especially its anti-terrorism sector, has played a vital role in building relations and trust between police and ordinary people, the statement said.

NYPD has been successful in preventing organized crimes in New York City and has significant experience in this regard.

The visiting delegation is going to share its experiences with the Ministry of Interior in fighting against corruption, reforms and combating terrorism.

The NYPD delegation’s arrival to Afghanistan is part of US President Donald Trump’s promise of assisting the Afghan government in bringing about reforms and strengthening security sector.

The delegation is set to meet Afghanistan security sector authorities.
