A Community Constable (CC) is an armed, uniformed peace officer at the rank of Special Constable member. Their primary focus is engaging their communities in active crime prevention/reduction activities, and building positive relationships between their communities and the RCMP. CCs enhance (not replace) the work of general duty RCMP constables; they have the capacity to provide tactical, enforcement and investigational support to other RCMP officers if required.
On April 12, 2011, the first troop of cadets from the RCMP’s Aboriginal Community Constable (ACC) pilot program graduated from RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division in Regina, Saskatchewan. ACCs are currently working in Aboriginal communities in the Northwest Territories, Manitoba, Alberta, and Nunavut.
ACCs were officially rebranded as Community Constables in May 2013, and the pilot was extended to 2015 to allow it to be offered to non-Aboriginal communities.
The program allows the RCMP to attract, develop and retain persons with specific linguistic, cultural and community skills that go beyond those taught at Depot, and enable the RCMP to tailor its policing services to specific, community-identified needs.
