Counternarcotics Police of Afghanistan: U.S. Assistance to Provincial Units Cannot Be Fully Tracked and Formal Capability Assessments Are Needed   [open pdf - 491KB]

"U.S. government support--Department of State (State), Department of Defense (DOD), and Department of Justice's (DOJ) Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)--to the Counternarcotics Police of Afghanistan (CNPA) has focused primarily on CNPA headquarters and its specialized units. Provincial units have received some support, such as facility refurbishments in six high threat areas (costing about $1.21 million) and the establishment of basic investigator training (part of a larger effort that cost $161.4 million), but overall U.S. financial resources devoted to the CNPA have only tangentially benefited them. Studies over the past several years have shown that CNPA provincial units have been neglected and that problems continue with their development and capabilities."
