The benefits of having a strong female police force in Afghanistan cannot be overstated. Female police officers have a key role in dealing with female victims, suspects and perpetrators. In a gender-separated society like Afghanistan, female officers have access to information which is not accessible to males and can therefore contribute to the prevention of crimes. EUPOL Afghanistan held three events this August to promote gender representation in the Afghan National Police (ANP), including a Code of Conduct information session for 45 female Afghan police officers, a five-day peacebuilding workshop for 30 female Afghan police officers, and this year's Educational Conference organised by the General Training Command of the Afghan Ministry of Interior (MoI) with the support of EUPOL.
