(3rd) Sergeant
Explanation:
We're in Afghanistan; this is a rank in the Counter-Narcotics Police of Afghanistan, of which country Nangarhar is a province.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counter_Narcotics_Police_of_Af...

Ranks are as in the Afghan National Police generally. 3ème Sergent is an alternative name for Sergent, a non-commissioned office rank above corporal and below Senior Sergeant (or 1er Sergent) and Staff Sergeant (or 2ème Sergent).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_National_Police#Rank_di...

This rank in other police forces that use a military rank structure generally corresponds to Sergeant in English: above corporal and below lieutenant.

So I think you could use either just "Sergeant" or "3rd Sergeant", as you prefer.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Adrian Boyle: Agreed, Sergeant, but would suggest that it sits between Corporal and Staff Sergeant (a little way to go before reaching the dizzy heights of Lieutenant)

  -> Thanks, Adrian :-) Yes, quite true, and Lieutenant is the other side of the officer/non-commissioned divide. From Senior Sergeant the next step up (for those who make it) is 2nd Lt.

agree  philgoddard: I wonder why it's in French. It must have been translated from another language.
