Police urged to keep fit

01 September 2014

A Malaitan has urged police officers from the province to stay health and maintain their fitness.

Jonah Myles said he had noted a lot of police officers today – both male and female – are unfit, with some of them almost obese.

“As officers of the law, it is their responsibility to stay health and keep fit physically,” Myles said.

“This is important for the performance of their duties while out in the field.”

He said unfit officers would not be able to deal with aggressive people.

Myles said his call does not only go to police in Malaita alone but all police officers.

He encouraged officers to maintain their fitness at all times and keep healthy.

“I think it would be a good idea if the police could set up physical fitness training everyday for its officers.”
