As Nova Scotia’s provincial police force, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are dedicated to serving and protecting Nova Scotians while providing programs and services that meet their needs. Know by the Force as “H” Division, Nova Scotia’s RCMP provide federal, provincial and municipal policing to the province through 37 detachments and more than 1,500 employees.
For Nova Scotia’s RCMP, communities are the focus of everything we do. That is why during 2010/2011, we removed over 500 unwanted firearms from our streets through a province-wide gun amnesty to improve community safety. For the fourth consecutive year, we saw a reduction in the number of serious injuries and fatalities on our roadways, reinforcing our commitment to education and enforcement to make our roads some of the safety in Canada.
Behind the scenes, our plain clothes Federal Policing Units conduct numerous investigations to target and disrupt organized crime groups that traffic drugs, contraband and guns. While not visible to most citizens, their expertise in organized crime and support of frontline police officers is critical to the safety of the province.
