Hundreds of police officers showcased their strength, tenacity, and combat skills at the opening ceremony of this year’s ‘Stay Fit for National Security’ campaign in Hanoi on Saturday morning.

The campaign is among a series of activities marking the 75th anniversary of the Traditional Day of Public Security Forces (August 19).

The event includes 13 categories with the participation of 1,484 police officers from 122 units throughout Vietnam.

Although the campaign was officially kick-started on Saturday, competitions of eight out of 13 categories have been organized since August 2019.

Following the opening ceremony, the remaining five categories were organized.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Thanh, Deputy Minister of Public Security, affirmed the people’s police force has been required to fulfill many difficult tasks and missions for the cause of protecting national security and ensuring social order and safety in the new situation.

Each police officer must develop comprehensively in terms of political and legal knowledge, foreign languages, and social knowledge, while training for good physical strength, Thanh stated.

Through physical exercises and sports, the people's police officers are able to improve their health, physical strength, and spirit, as well as sharpening their political and professional skills, thus contributing to solidarity and the protection of national security, he added.
