Kabul Security Force

The Kabul Security Force (KSF) was a Resolute Support organization that assisted the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) in the effort to secure the capital of Afghanistan - Kabul - from insurgents and terrorists.

The Kabul Security Force monitored the Kabul security situation 24 hours a day within the Combined Joint Operations Center (CJOC). The KSF provided situational awareness through the monitoring via cameras mounted on towers, drones, or balloons.

The KSF also had a quick reaction force (QRF) that responded to emergencies on the ground.

In addition, the KSF provided advisors to the ANDSF from the operational level at the Afghan Kabul Garrison Command down to the tactical level at some of the checkpoints around and in the city of Kabul. Advisors from the KSF worked with the ANDSF to ensure that checkpoints were properly manned and that equipment - such as explosive scanners - was being used properly.
