Task Force Centurion Police Mentors Share Field Experiences With Kabul Police
By Capt. Marvin J. Baker
KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan Uniformed Police Quick Reaction Force officers based in Kabul, Afghanistan fend off unruly "rioters" during a training event near Camp Julien Jan. 9. Soldiers in Task Force Centurion's 508th Military Police Company mentored the Kabul-area AUP QRF during a six-week course, which led up to a culminating event that included hostage-rescue, building-clearing, casualty evacuation, and IED awareness real-world scenarios.
Despite any obstacles, one AUP officer said that his unit is now able to provide security to the city after the coalition forces training.
