The APPF is a pay-for-service Afghan government security service provider underneath the Ministry of Interior that protects people, infrastructure, facilities, construction projects and convoys. It is organized as a State Owned Enterprise (SOE) in order to be able to contract with domestic and international customers for security services.
The APPF was established in 2009 and today has about 10,000 guards who provide security for international, government and non-governmental entities, sites and facilities. As a result of Presidential Decree 62, the APPF’s role will grow substantially over the next year as it takes over security responsibility from private security companies.
This site contains information for our customers who need to contract for security with the APPF as well as those companies seeking Risk Management Company licenses. It also provides general information about the APPF and the ongoing transition of security services from the private sector to the APPF.
