WASHINGTON, Oct. 5, 2005 – Representatives from the Afghan National Police will travel to the United States later this week to become familiar with
how civilian and military police operate in America.
Army Maj. Michael Adelberg, current operations officer for the Police Reform Directorate at the Office of Security Cooperation Afghanistan, will
escort one ANP general officer and one colonel during the weeklong trip.
"This trip is an excellent opportunity for the ANP to see the type of program in action that we are trying to set up for Afghanistan," Adelberg
Adelberg will accompany ANP Brig. Gen. Baini, deputy chief of Uniformed Police, and Col. Wassim, the Interior Ministry's operations director.
Another focus of the visit is to meet with members of the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division, at Fort Drum, N.Y., which is scheduled to deploy to
Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom early in 2006. Adelberg will speak to the division's leaders and soldiers about the operational
role of the Police Reform Directorate and the Afghan National Police.
This is an intresting development, I think it shows progress. I think Iraqi Police Officers will be going over to the US soon.
