    Since the 2003 US-led invasion in Iraq that toppled Saddam Hussein, the US has spent billions of dollars to train and equip the Iraqi police force.

    It is part of a wider plan to build up the country's security forces that could stand on its own two feet in advance of the withdrawal of US troops.
