Afghan Police Training Women
January 15, 2003
For the first time in a decade, Afghanistan's national police academy is training female officers to serve in the capital, Kabul, say Interior Ministry officials.
More than 60 women becan a six-month training course several months ago at the police academy in Kabul and are expected to graduate in two months.
"Eventually we want 50 percent of our police forces staffed by women," said Interior Minister Taj Mohammed Wardak.
Wardak said the women will be deployed across the city at checkpoints, at the airport, in jails, and as criminal investigators.
