Inmates of correctional institutions in Dubai have completed a 50-million-step challenge.
The Dubai Police had launched the 22-day fitness journey to encourage inmates to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Major Muhammad Al Obaidly, acting director of Inmates Training and Education Programmes at the General Department of Punitive and Correctional Institutions, said the initiative is part of the force’s efforts to implement sports programmes for inmates.
