The Deputy Director Criminal Investigations Branch, has called on police officers to commit to healthy living lifestyles that will help them keep fit.
He made the plea when giving a keynote address at the official opening of Sierra Cup tournament at the Special Support Group (SSG) grounds over the weekend. Mr Keeditse said physical training is one way that officers could use to keep their bodies fit and encouraged them to continue investing in their health through sports like playing sports like football.
He went on to say that playing football will not only help them gain physical and mental fitness but the opportunity to interact with each other and the community they serve.
Mr Keeditse further encouraged the officers to utilise the health services provided at the tournament to screen for non-communicable diseases such as respiratory diseases, cancer and diabetes. He said early diagnosis of these ailments could help with timely treatment.
The teams taking part in the five weeks tournament were seven from SSG, one from Telecommunications Branch (TTB) and Police Headquarters.
