Cops in Kabul is the thrilling personal account of retired RCMP Superintendent William C. Malone, who was the deputy Canadian police commander in Kabul, Afghanistan, from May 2011 to May 2012.

Malone, who was the deputy Canadian police commander in Kabul, Afghanistan, from May 2011 to May 2012. His serious and at times hilarious story of working with military personnel, diplomats, and civil society organizations highlights the challenges of trying to bring about security and the rule of law in a theatre of war. From 2003 to 2014, Canada played an integral role as part of the NATO coalition in Afghanistan. The Government of Canada sent its military and diplomats to that war-torn country to help bring about peace. One little-known fact about Canada’s contribution during the eleven-year conflict was the presence of almost 300 Canadian police from across the country who volunteered to help train, mentor, and build the capacity of the Afghan National Police. Canada’s mission was to help Afghans rebuild their country as a stable, democratic, and self-sufficient society. Canada, along with dozens of other nations and international organizations, was engaged at the request of the democratically elected Afghan government to work within the United Nations–mandated and NATO-led mission in the Central Asian nation. This one-year snapshot takes a fascinating look at the bravery demonstrated by Canadian peacekeepers in a volatile and dangerous place.

    This is an excellent book for police officers or others who are thinking about doing a peace keeping tour. William Malone keeps it real, and does not sugar coat anything. I salute all of our military and police personal who go to these countries. You guys are the real heroes.

    Quite interesting, and certainly insightful is this personal account of a year spent in Afghanistan as a member of an international group of police officers tasked with training the Afghan National Police. Red tape, corruption, bureaucracy, bombs all in the midst of a theatre of war. Very well written and thoroughly enjoyable.

    I was eager to read this; the setting fascinated me and I enjoy non-fiction. The author was part of a Canadian task force helping with training for the Afghan National Police. However, a large portion of the book is spent on overly detailed explanations of bureaucratic wrangling and international agencies. The names and job titles come thick and fast, but there are no personalities attached. The author constantly reiterates the need for patience and cultural sensitivity, but concrete examples ar I was eager to read this; the setting fascinated me and I enjoy non-fiction.

The names and job titles come thick and fast, but there are no personalities attached. The author constantly reiterates the need for patience and cultural sensitivity, but concrete examples are scarce. This book would probably be useful to someone studying international co-operative organizations.
