Functioning under the military of Tajikistan, the border guards are trained by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, along with the Afghan Border Police.[1] A higher education college is located in the capitol, Dushanbe, the Border Troops Academy, and a Border Troops Training Centre is located south of it, in the Rudaki District.[2] In 2011, the Border Troops, along with the national army and mobile forces, took part in a military drill with Kyrgyzstan. Their objective was to eliminate two terrorist groups on the Kyrgyz-Tajik border.[3]
