Ashraf Training Center Graduates 704 New Iraqi Policemen
The Ashraf training center has been a source of positive Iraqi Police officers, and they graduated 704 new Iraqi police officers.
These are Iraqi police officers that have received in depth training from Coalition trainers, and it is a positive facility that is slowly being given over to the members of the Iraqi police. The coalition has worked in depth one on one with the members of the Iraqi Police dept, to make sure that they know how to train, and how to provide the same training that members have received up to now.
Iraqi Police Major General Abdul is the active provincial director of police in Diyala, and he is a pleased individual, for they are getting the tools and ability to run their own police dept.
Six months ago the police department was a sorry facility, it has been one that has vastly turned around. The Coalition has planned for the eventual taking over of the training by Iraqi Servicemembers in the Police Department, and they have been working to make sure that it can be accomplished.
This group included 21 females, and the amount of females is slowly increasing in each graduating class. As of now the majority of the training is being done by the Iraqi police officer, about 30 percent of the training is actively being done by the Coalition, the rest has already been assumed by the Iraqi police.
