Health committee  Thanks.

June 18th, 2019Committee meeting

Commissioner Brenda Lucki

Health committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. Good afternoon, Mr. Chair and members of this committee. Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for inviting me here to speak today. I want to start by saying the RCMP takes all reported allegations of criminal activity and incidents very seriously and we are commi

Public Accounts committee  Those are great questions. We're just over 20,000. I don't have the exact number. We are continuing to put through 40 troops per year at the RCMP academy, which translates into about 1,200 new graduates per year with the attrition. We've been working hard at our vacancy rates,

Public Accounts committee  It affects the numbers when we count, as Deputy Commissioner Brennan alluded to, because they are operational members, but they're just not at work at that snapshot in time. That's one way it affects us, but obviously, there is a lot of planning that has to come into effect when

Commr Brenda Lucki

Public Accounts committee  We could easily say, for example, that we only require 75% to qualify, but we want everybody to qualify. The reality is that, at any given time, the OAG could come in. We will never have 100%. That is the reality, and it's a reality for all police agencies because it's a snapsho

Public Accounts committee  I'm going to refer that question to Mr. Watters.

Commr Brenda Lucki

Public Accounts committee  I think you were right when you said it really is about officer safety. If somebody delays their qualification by a month, they're not vulnerable. The risk is not high that they will not be able to shoot their assailant.

May 16th, 2019Committee meeting

Commr Brenda Lucki

Public Accounts committee  Absolutely. It's not that we don't welcome any criticism of our systems, but everything that's looked at is a snapshot in time. When we say that 13% of firearms have not been maintained, that's a snapshot in time. If a member gets advised that their pistol needs to be maintained,

Commr Brenda Lucki

Public Accounts committee  It's not always linked to the number of instructors. It's location and the availability of ranges. Carbine is very specific in terms of what kind of range we can use, and we're very limited in that area. It's also geography. For instance, detachment members in Nunavut need to com

Public Accounts committee  I can assure you that they get the equipment and training they need. When you speak about justification, it's more about the realities that we're dealing with, and it's about when we roll out new equipment. There is the reality of not being able to roll out 20,000 items at one gi

Commr Brenda Lucki

Public Accounts committee  I would say yes and no. Obviously in a marked vehicle, yes. For unmarked vehicles, the ratio might not be one per vehicle. In the unmarked, plainclothes world, when they need the carbines, they work as a group, and they go and do what they need to do. They will take the carbine
