Afghan National Police recruits study their notes on how to use a Kalashnikov rifle during a training session at the police academy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The readiness of Afghanistan's security forces is central to U.S. and NATO plans to withdraw all forces from the country by the end of 2014, and the academy's new commander wants to help turn around a 146,000-strong national police force long riddled with corruption, incompetence and factional rivalries.
