Reference pics: CIVPOL in Afghanistan

Here are some pics of Canadian civilian police officers in Afghanistan. Interesting mix of CF equipment like C7A2's, CADPAT (AR) body armour and helmets, tan/blue combats and coloured police service badges:



































Their hats look very similar to the "tilley" hats I was issued when I was a cadet, with the addition of CADPAT (AR) loops and cat-eyes on the back:

Mentoring and assistance, liaison work, sometimes simply for experience that you cant obtain in country. Happens in more then just afghanistan too.

Halifax Police has awarded officers for service in sudan, kosovo, bosnia, east timor, sierra leone, haiti, israel and even afghanistan.

This is also a good link for Canadian policing in Afghanistan, as well as elsewhere in the world:

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/po-mp/index-eng.htm

It provides some of the history, as well as interesting facts and stats regarding civilian police operations throughout the world.
