Nolan Russell, then 7, punches the air in happiness after mounting the Clydesdale named Russell in honor of his father, who died on duty in 2011. June 21, 2016. - Chris So/Toronto Star

The Passing of Russell

Given the long association of the Force with equine companions and in common cause with other Canadian Police Forces it was felt that we should recognize and sympathize with the Toronto Police Service in the death of a unique horse from their mounted unit. A special member of the Toronto Police Service’s (TPS) Mounted Unit has died.

Undermining trust in police is dangerous for us all

As anti-police rhetoric in Canada has intensified over the past weeks, I confess that the Mountie in me has been stirred to anger. Not because of what one might assume – that I refuse to acknowledge that serious mistakes have been made, or that I am eager to let police leadership off the proverbial hook – but rather, because of the volume of quick, easy and short-sighted criticism from our politicians and pundits, much of it proffered without any balance or nuance.

RCMP/NPF Statement: Speculation on Rideau Hall Arrest

July 10, 2020
Supt. Ernie MacAulay

Systemic Racism in the RCMP

There seems to be some confusion about what ‘systemic’ actually means with some journalists even using the term as a synonym of ‘systematic’. Systematic is anything done methodically, according to a plan, or utilizing a system. Systemic means involving the whole body or organization. To be systemic in the RCMP, racism would have to permeate the whole organization, be part of the both administrative and operational policy, and be universally and consistently pursued by the organization’s management.
