KUANTAN – Pahang Police chief Datuk Seri Sharifuddin Abdul Ghani today advised police officers and personnel in the state to use the stairs more often.
“If you want to go up to the second or third floor, it is better to use the stairs,” he said when advising police officers and personnel in the state to take care of their health and not become overweight or obese.
“Refraining from using the lift can also help to save electricity,” he told reporters after attending the Pahang Police headquarters monthly assembly here.
Sharifuddin said being overweight or obese would reduce their chances of getting promoted, as was stated recently by Bukit Aman Director of Management Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah.
“We need to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including by participating in the physical and aerobic exercises to be held every Friday from now on,” he said.
He said policemen aged 40 and above would be required to see their doctor at least twice a year and would be monitored by department heads and district police chiefs.
Earlier, in his speech, Sharifuddin said the crime index in Pahang last year had declined by 15.96 per cent or 882 cases compared to the previous year.
He said that based on the state CID crime index statistics report, 4,645 criminal cases were reported last year compared to 5,527 in the previous year.
The number of criminal cases resolved increased to 50.87 per cent last year from 50.14 per cent the previous year. – BERNAMA
