Programs and services

Our mandate is multi-faceted. We prevent and investigate crime, maintain order, enforce laws on matters as diverse as health and the protection of government revenues, contribute to national security, ensure the safety of state officials, visiting dignitaries and foreign missions, and provide vital operational support services to other police and law enforcement agencies.

Community policing

Successful police work begins in the community. The RCMP recognizes this and has committed significant resources to ensuring that our efforts closely match the needs of the communities we serve.
