Caraga police to advocate healthy lifestyle

By Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, May 12 (PIA) -- Aside from ensuring public safety, police officers in Caraga Region is advocating a healthy lifestyle.

Police Regional Office (PRO)-13 regional information officer PSupt Martin Gamba said police officers must not only serve as protectors of the public to uphold peace and security in the community, they should also serve as an agent to promote healthy lifestyle to the public.

Gamba said the general public as well should know the importance of living a healthy lifestyle by getting involved in exercises, sports, and even “fun run” for which the Philippine National Police (PNP) is regularly conducting.

He added if the community is healthy, then people are also active and will always be alert for any circumstances that threaten peace and security.

“In this way, the public will also have the capacity to defend themselves from any criminals because they are active and alert,” he said.

For the part of the police, Gamba said if they are in good shape, they will be more productive as they can really implement security measures against criminals, “thus, ensuring public safety."

Early this year, PRO-13 conducted the “Takbong Maharlika, Tungo sa Pagkakaisa,” aimed to encourage and urge PNP personnel and citizens in the region to take on the fitness project and exercise a national culture of fitness, leading to the vision of a healthier Philippines. (RER/PIA-Caraga)
