AMMAN— Jordan has begun training of up to 32,000 Iraqi police cadets in a more than $1 billion dollar project approved by the United States.

The training began on Monday in a Jordanian police facility near Amman. The Jordanian project was meant to last for two years.

Jordanian officials said the first batch to undergo training consists of 500 Iraqi cadets. The cadets arrived over the weekend and will spend at least eight weeks in the training course.

Last week, a group of 106 Iraqi police officers completed an instructors course at a Jordanian security facility. Instructors from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and the United States were expected to provide training to Iraqi police cadets.
