LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A newly-constructed building for a police training centre was inaugurated in southern Helmand province, officials said on Wednesday.

Funded by Britain and Denmark, the building was constructed at a cost of £12m (919,257,000 afghanis) in a year, Gen. Nabi Jan Mullahkhel, the deputy police chief for the 707th police zone, told Pajhwok Afghan News.   

All necessary equipment and facilities are available at the centre, he said, adding that police previously received training in a makeshift building. Some newly graduated policemen were also given certificates at the inaugural ceremony.

Governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal praised police role in maintaining security.

Over the past two months, 180 policemen, including 52 sergeants, have been trained by foreign mentors, said the training center head, Lt. Col. Mohammad Rafiq Sherzad. The graduates will be deployed to Helmand and Nimroz provinces.
