We've had different elements of the Army (MPs, MI, SF, etc.) training different elements of the new Afghan Police force for quite a while now. There are also PMCs that have training contracts, some working in conjunction with uniformed troops, some not. The Afghan Police mission is broad, encompassing not only conventional police duties, but LE aspects of counter-insurgency, and, of course, the huge anti-drug mission.
