    Afghanistan National Police (ANP), Afghan National Civil Order Police (ANCOP) is a special police unit developed in July 2006 with responsibilities to provide civil order presence patrols, prevent violent public incidents, and provide crisis and anti-terror response in urban and metropolitan environments.  

    ANCOP has an authorized strength of 5400 and is divided into five Brigades stationed in Kabul, Paktia, Kandahar, Herat, and Mazar-i-Sharif.  ANCOP troopers are generally considered a more elite force than the regular ANP and as such are frequently deployed to problem areas and hot spots.  NATO ISAF special operations forces as well as  French Gendarmerie and Italian Carbinieri provide training and serve as advisors to ANCOP personnel.

    In addition to the five ANCOP brigades the command also fields a Special Support Battalion made up of a Heavy Weapons Company, a Transportation Company,  a Logistics Support Company, two SWAT Teams and several Explosive Ordnance Disposal Teams.

    Afghanistan made ANCOP patch backed with black velcro. There are several variations of this insignia although all are similar. This is one of the patches visible in photographs of US Special Forces operators from ODA-7316 in the book Gentlemen Bastards. During 2009-10, ODA-7316 deployed to Afghanistan as advisors to ANCOP units in Kandahar Province.

    Afghanistan made ANCOP SWAT Team patch backed with black velcro. The Dari text reads Ministry of the Interior (top), Tactical Operations (above SWAT), Police - Public Law and Order (flag) and National Civil Order Police (below scorpion). A variation patch exists that differs only in the background color of maroon instead of khaki as seen here. The patch above is identified as number 167-74 in the September 2012 issue of the 'Chute & Dagger journal.

    Afghanistan made ANCOP Strike Force patch circa Spring 2011. Suspected to be for an element of the ANCOP Special Support Battalion however this has not been confirmed. The insignia might also have been produced for a special deployment or other operational mission/event. This patch is identified as number 162-100 in the June 2011 issue of the 'Chute & Dagger journal.


    There are other ANCOP patches and insignia out there so if you have any variations please post them in this thread. Thanks for looking!

    When I mentored the ANCOP, I remember their favorite patch to wear being......OURS! They would give anything to wear one of our unit patches instead of their own.

    What photograph are you referring to? Any chance you have that book?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello

    here is one ANCOP patch for the field jacket and one plate certainly for uniforms.
    Not sure that the "metallic" insignia on the ANCOP cap is really topical, but found like that.
