Police Regional Office 10 conducted the closing ceremony of Batches 10 & 11 of this PRO’s 15-Day Enhanced Health and Fitness Program at RHQ Covered Court, Camp Alagar, Cagayan de Oro City on July 21, 2022.

A total of 109 PNP personnel graduated in the said program under batches 10 and 11, aiming to gain the standard body mass index of the police.

PCOL DANILDO B TUMANDA, Chief of the Regional Staff, reminded the participants that this program is made to help them achieve their standard or acceptable BMI.

“I’m glad that these batches lost weight twice compared to the previous batches. It’s really just a matter of self-discipline, and having discipline in your body—gradually, you will achieve the normal or acceptable body mass index that you wanted.” He said.

PBGEN BENJAMIN C ACORDA JR, Regional Director, PRO10 also said that all police officers must adhere to maintain the standard weight or acceptable BMI.

“Everyone should be responsible with their health and body. The tendency if our police are obese, it’s easy for them to get sick. Ginagawa natin itong programa not because for their individual gain but for their families as well.”

“We have a coach for this program who volunteered to teach our personnel about nutrition. Kaya nga po this program is not just all about exercise but it also teaches our personnel how to be healthy conscious. With regard of transferring personnel if an acceptable BMI will not be met, we don’t do that. May tamang proseso sa placement or transfer of personnel po.”

RD ACORDA also stated that this program was designed to ensure that the men and women of PRO10 are fit enough to progress in their career.

Further, the biggest losers for the two batches were PMSg Leoniso Pasa (Batch 10) from the National Support Unit who garnered 13.73 kgs loss and PCpl Vincent Lumayag (Batch 11) from Misamis Occidental Police Provincial Office who garnered 12.73 kgs loss. ###
