 Recently, more than 15 local ANP members attended the first class on Police Values and Ethics being taught by a Paryan ANP trainer to promote awareness of ethical behavior and how it impacts law enforcement.

 “The ANP moved quickly into the training,” said U.S. Army Master Sgt. Todd Eipperle, senior noncommissioned officer in charge of the Task Force Red Bulls embedded training team in Panjshir, and Marshalltown, Iowa, native. “They were eager for class, taking plenty of notes and asking several questions.”

The training is a refresher course reinforcing information local ANP learned at BMT in Kabul.

“Some ANP never see the initial training from BMT again,” Eipperle said. “Being retrained and able to actually openly discuss the scenarios and information will help them apply it easier.”

When the ETT members began visiting the districts and asking the local ANP if they were conducting training, the response was a resounding no, Eipperle said.

Knowing the local ANP were not being further trained on the basics, the ETT members began researching ways to help.

ETT members started a “train the trainers” course, which they hold every month, using information from the manuals used to instruct the ANP’s BMT course. Several district trainers from Panjshir Province attended the week-long class to learn how to train their local ANP.

ETT members aim for the ANP to continue to hold their own classes.

“The idea is to have the ANP sustain the training once we’re gone,” Eipperle said. “Just as we do annual training in the (U.S.) military to retain what we’ve been taught, the ANP will be able to continue their training and apply it to every day circumstances.”

Two classes are held every month, each class covering a different subject. During the first class, students discussed scenarios and answered questions identifying the unethical behavior in the scenario, the dilemma and how to resolve the dilemma or behavior.

“When they broke into groups, there were many heated discussions,” said U.S. Army Spc. Brian Brown, communication specialist with the TF Red Bulls ETT in Panjshir, and a Central City, Iowa, native. “Being able to talk about corruption and taking gifts as police officers is not something they discussed in BMT. Here, they were able to apply the training they just learned to everyday scenarios and come up with an ethical answer.”

In July, at the end of the 16-class course, there will be a graduation for the ANP who attended, said Eipperle.

“We’re hoping that each district will be able to do the same and the ANP will be able to sustain their annual training and become proficient as teachers and students,” he said.PANJSHIR PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Afghan National Police wait for their “Police Values and Ethics” training to begin in Paryan District here Jan. 9.
