Policemen told to Lose Weight or Face Action.

The Karnataka State Reserve Police have told their policemen to lose weight or face action. Those who are overweight are under the scanner after the head of the force announced that they had to choose between keeping their jobs and their pot bellies.

On Tuesday (July 3rd 2018) Bhaskar Rao, Additional Director-General of Police passed a circular where Karnataka State Reserve Police has said that the commanders of all 12 platoons have been instructed to identify pot-bellied personnel and put them on a strict exercise regime and healthy diet, and they will be given a specified deadline for reducing the weight, who will be failing the deadline will face disciplinary action.

According to the Senior Police officer, all the platoon commanders have already started the drive to identify the personal based on their Body Massed Index (BMI). Apart from regular parades and exercises, they have been directed to choose sports of their choice, along with compulsory jogging and swimming.

Mr. Rao said this will improve the policemen’s quality of living. “About 150 policemen, aged 40-50 years, die every year from lifestyle-related ailments. Many of them have a history of cardiac problems, blood pressure, and diabetes, and also heavy drinking and smoking habits. Such mortality rates in the force are unacceptable. Some discipline and a healthy diet can make a big difference.

Platoon Commanders of all platoons will be held responsible for keeping their cadets healthy and the seniors have asked to chalk out a routine wherein the workouts will be fun, and focus on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual fitness of the personnel.

Though the specific deadline is not set Mr. Bhaskar Rao said that he would review the progress after 3 Months.
