From the Afghan Uni­formed Police train­ing there were 652 grad­u­ates, the Afghan Bor­der Police grad­u­at­ed 804, and 900 grad­u­at­ed from advanced or spe­cial­ty police cours­es. The ANSF has designed the police train­ing cours­es to ensure that the ANP con­tin­ues to grow and become a high­ly qual­i­fied police force. Each police branch has its own train­ing require­ments but some require­ments such as the 64 hour lit­er­a­cy train­ing are stan­dard through­out all cours­es. The Afghan Nation­al Civ­il Order Police course is designed to give an entry lev­el police recruit the nec­es­sary skills to stay alive and respond to the police needs of the soci­ety. The ANCOP train­ing pro­gram includes instruc­tion on use of force, human rights, first respon­der, traf­fic law, civ­il dis­tur­bance, basic foot patrol, and firearms. Recruits will receive spe­cial­ized crowd con­trol train­ing and spe­cial­ized patrol tac­tics train­ing taught by inter­na­tion­al police advi­sors and the U.S. mil­i­tary. The Basic Bor­der Course is designed to pro­vide spe­cif­ic train­ing towards the duties and respon­si­bil­i­ties of the ABP. The train­ing con­sists of cours­es spe­cif­ic to the Bor­der Police, enabling Bor­der Police­man to bet­ter per­form in assigned roles at the var­i­ous Bor­der Check posts, Vehi­cle Check­points, as well as while on foot and vehi­cle patrol. It will pro­vide intro­duc­to­ry train­ing in the dif­fer­ent tasks and respon­si­bil­i­ties of ABP in a high threat envi­ron­ment. Instruc­tion includes use of force, human rights, check­point secu­ri­ty, basic first aid, vehi­cle search­es, and radio com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The goal of the Afghan Uni­form Police basic patrol­man course is to pro­vide a sin­gle, all-inclu­sive basic train­ing for ANP recruits. This six week course is the base line for all police train­ing and pro­vides an entry-lev­el police recruit with the nec­es­sary skills to stay alive and respond to the police needs of the soci­ety. This is the first course all police go through. After suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion they will be eli­gi­ble to take unit-spe­cif­ic and advanced cours­es.
