Gen. John Allen said he was focusing on re-vetting the 16,000 local police stationed throughout the country.
That means another 1,000 recruits are waiting for training.
The slow down comes as the military faces a growing number of insider threats from local forces. Allen said it was a complex issue that requires a comprehensive, combined response from all allies.
