Public Safety committee  In a perfect world, I would say yes. When I was the district officer in northern Manitoba, in Thompson, we policed half of the province, and in that entire half of the province, there was not one addictions centre, so anybody who needed addictions counselling had to go down sou

Public Safety committee  Thank you for your question. We have started a special recruitment process in Nunavut for Inuit people. We've identified people interested in the RCMP and we are working with them. Right now we have seven. It's a pilot project. Seven people were recently identified, in January,

Public Safety committee  I can't speak specifically to whether they've been harassed in their own community, but—and I think somebody mentioned it earlier—it's all about people trusting their police. If they don't trust the police, it doesn't matter if you get people from that community; they're still th

Public Safety committee  In the RCMP when COVID-19 hit, we made some very difficult decisions within our organization, and those have probably contributed along with what's happened recently to the morale. We cancelled all leave. We cancelled all training. People had to quarantine before they could go up

Public Safety committee  First, thank you for your appreciation for our members, because it means a lot. They're working hard each day in the communities they serve. Yes, there's absolutely systemic racism. I can give you a couple of examples that we've found over the years. For example, we have a phy

Public Safety committee  We have some questions, for example, in our aptitude test. You know what? I might refer this to Gail, because that is Gail's specialty in the HR world. A lot of it has been brought out in our recruiting process.

Public Safety committee  Absolutely. We work very hard to ensure that we increase the diversity at all levels. We're doing better, but it's not good enough. We need to do it better, and we need to bring people up and develop them from within the employees we already have, because if we don't.... When it

Public Safety committee  You raise an excellent point. There is a project we are looking at. We used to have a special constable program, for example, whereby people from the community could get modified training and go back to their community. We sort of got away from it, because they said it was a tier

Public Safety committee  You raise another excellent point, in the sense that our business intelligence is not strong in that area. We have what's called the police resourcing methodology. It is so labour-intensive to figure out how many police officers we need in a given area. In a place like Vancouve

Public Safety committee  At the detachment level, as far as I know, they have their annual performance plan, which includes the unit-level quality assurance process. They review each activity to see whether there are risks that need to be addressed, and it's supposed to feed up into the management review

Public Safety committee  I'm going to look into that. I commit to that. I know when I was district officer in three different districts, we had that nailed down. As much as we didn't like it, we had it.

Public Safety committee  They started that investigation in 2016, and we received the report at the end of January 2020. They put a lot of thought into that report and into that investigation, and it is very important that we do the same when we look at those recommendations. I personally have read the

Public Safety committee  The report is no longer with the RCMP. It's with the CRCC. We are finished. We have done our review, and the CRCC got it a couple of weeks ago.

Public Safety committee  There are a lot of recommendations in that report. Again, that report was investigated over six years. There were two or three terabytes of information that had to be reviewed, and we wanted to make sure that we did the proper review, because people deserve that.
