SAR-I-PUL (PANinfo-icon): The Sarancharak police headquarters was inaugurated in the northwestern province of Sar-i-Pul, an official said Tuesday.

It took two years to construct the facility, said provincial police chief Brig. Gen. Asadullah Shirzad.

A US Army engineering team built the facility at a cost of $700,000. The two-acre complex has 18 administrative offices, a bedroom, a cafeteria, a conference room, and jail cells for men and womeninfo-icon.

“Before, we worked out of a three-room house,” Sancharak district police chief Hakim Bik said.

Zabihullah, a spokesman for the  American engineering team, said that in 2011 nearly $396 million would be spend in the north on construction projects related to educationinfo-icon, highways, and the provincial government.

He said construction work was underway on district police headquarters in the Gosfandi, Balkhab and Kohistanat districts of Sar-i-Pul.

Last year the US Army built police headquarters in the Sozma Qala and the Sayad districts of Sar-i-Pul.
