ABSTRACT
The article discusses the formation of community policing units to boost local security in Taliban-plagued areas in Afghanistan. Initiated by U.S. Army General David Petraeus upon assumption of command of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) war effort, the local police units would be formed, paid and uniformed by the government. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has reportedly objected to the initiative, with the three previous endeavors involving militias and local security forces.
