The Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho and members of the Command group kicked off the Required Fitness Level Tests at the Nasese foreshore this morning.

The Commissioner has been concerned with the health and the level of fitness for some members of the Force following the high number of deaths of Police officers succumbing to non-communicable diseases.

Since the 1st of January the Force has laid to rest 5 police officers who also succumbed to NCD complications.

Members of the Command group kicked off the Required Fitness Level Tests at the Nasese foreshore on Monday 18 February, 2019.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said the health of officers has always been an area of concern as the people of Fiji expected more from members of the police force.

“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 efficiently 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.
