Abstract:

This report describes the efforts of the NATO-led coalition forces in Afghanistan to create an Afghan constabulary force to control urban violence and serve as a counterinsurgency force. The United States does not have civilian constabulary forces, so the U.S. military and the Italian Carabinieri were asked to provide training. The Afghan National Civil Order Police was from the start a victim of its own success, as constantly changing assignments to dangerous combat zones resulted in high attrition rates that nearly spelled the end of the force.
