Contractors to Train Afghan National Police
The Department of State sent representatives to testify before the Commission on Wartime Contracting recently. During the testimony the representatives briefed the commission on the role that contractors are filling in training the Afghan National Police (ANP).

However, this will soon change as the lead will be assumed by DoD. Civilian contractors will still be used (currently provided by DynCorp).
