The Fiji Police Force has acquired pedometers to help convert officers who have been liabilities into assets.

A pedometer is a portable electronic device that counts the number of steps take by detecting the motion of the person’s hips.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier Iowane Naivalurua said the initiative aimed to turn officers who have been liabilities into assets.

“This new gadget will ensure that each officer would have taken 10,000 steps a day and move towards living a healthier lifestyle,” Naivalurua said.

He said the force will be expanding its health and fitness programs which will start involving officers' family members.

The gadgets are only available for members holding executive positions currently but the force wants to provide pedometers for all the officers.
