The program aims to help the policemen go back to their fit body to become more effective in giving their service to the public. In addition, the challenge is also a motivation to the policemen to maintain a healthy lifestyle so they can stay in good shape.

To start the challenge, initial weight-in was done in September, where according to the result, 7 of their men are obese, while 34 men are overweight.
