Sint Maarten Police Force's Participation in Nagico Health Expo

The Sint Maarten Police Force is pleased to announce its active participation in the recent Nagico Health Expo held on Saturday, August 26th, 2023. The event, dedicated to promoting health and wellness within our community, provided an excellent platform for the police force to engage with the public and highlight the importance of physical fitness and teamwork.

As part of our commitment to fostering a healthier and safer Sint Maarten, the police force organized a special physical activity called the "Parkour Challenge." This challenge, inspired by the art of Parkour, involved participants navigating an obstacle course designed to increase efficiency and test their physical prowess.

Parkour is the art of moving from point "a" to point "b" using the obstacles in your path to increase your efficiency. In the Pakor Challenge, participants were grouped into teams of six, and each team had the opportunity to navigate the obstacle course as quickly as possible. This exciting challenge not only highlighted the participants' physical capabilities but also emphasized the value of teamwork and strategic thinking in overcoming obstacles.
