Police officers kicked off the Required Fitness Level Tests at the Nasese foreshore in Suva this morning.

This was led by Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho and members of the Command group.

The Commissioner has been concerned with the health and the level of fitness for some members of the institution following the high number of deaths of Police officers succumbing to Non-Communicable Diseases.

Brigadier General Qiliho says the health of officers has always been an area of concern as the people of Fiji expect more them.

“One’s health and their ability to produce the desired outputs are linked and that is why we cannot have sickly officers as they won’t be able to serve effectively in this demanding profession. We are grateful to the Ministry of Health for assisting us with our Health Audit so we are able to understand what needs to be addressed with our health”.

The Required Fitness Level Tests will be conducted in all four policing divisions.
