CHARIKAR): A 300-member contingent of the Afghan Local Police (ALP) would be deployed to the Koh-i-Safi district of central Parwan province, an official said on Friday.
The ALP personnel had been recruited based on guarantees from tribal elders, the Koh-i-Safi district chief, Saifullah Baidar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
A positive change would come about in district security after the establishment of ALP checkpoints as soon as they the recruits completed training, he said.
Harassing by militants at night, residents preferred staying indoors after sundown, but with the deployment of the force, the problem would be addressed, hoped a tribal elder from the district, Haji Gul Agha.
A newly recruited local policeman, Baryalai, said he had joined the force on the basis of his personal interest and would try to improve area security.
