“Police officers globally have faced a unique and complex set of challenges in their daily duties over the last three years, putting their physical and mental health at risk. It is an inescapable situation, and their commitment to protecting the public has been causing a great deal of occupational stress. Aside from the virus, the officers have been suffering from other physical health issues such as cardiovascular disease and respiratory illnesses. Therefore, they need extra protection and increased medical provisions to keep them healthy. This GGHC initiative will benefit over 1000 police officers by introducing them to screening and raising awareness about the importance of regular health check-ups and taking care of their healthcare needs” said Dr A. Amalraj, Commissioner of Police, Tambaram.
