I think this is rediculous to try and rid the RCMP, they are a part of our tradition/heritage sence February 1, 1920.

The RCMP go through such a harsh training program compared to the police, this makes them better prepared to face the problems that are arising in Nova Scotia. They are better trained to face harsh judgements and ridicule when thrown at them.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police stand out with their amazing traditional Serge, we should be proud to have them as a part our community and not try to rid them because of prejudice.

If anything should be done to combine the polie and the RCMP, make them all as the Royal Mounted Canadian Police and make sure they all get the training that the RCMP go through.

Do not do away with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The RCMP are much more involed in the community than the Halifax Police. I really wish that the Halifax Police would join forces and work with the RCMP. The RCMP are one of the most recognizable organizations in the world! Be proud of them!!! Work together guys! Together, you would be a great force!

The HR Police Department COULDN'T CATCH A COLD!!
Got that !! They are not worth the powder to blow them to KINGDOM COME!! KEEP THE RCMP AND GET RID OF THE USELESS HALIFAX REGIONAL POLICE. They are a crime all by themselves. How many missing persons and murder cases have they solved recently, eh?
Put the HR Police out ticketing vehicles and get the big boys (RCMP) to do what NEEDS to be DONE.

I think that is so ridiculous the Halifax police could never replace the RCMP! If you want to be treated with respect you call the RCMP, if you want to be treated like crap call the halifax police!

I brought a complaint against them. Further cover up is all that happened.

RCMP did something and did not file a incident report on what they did or where they brought me.
They told me they were going to investigate. Once I gave the information the officer stated they would only investigate themselves in the matter.So the serious complaint was not investigated. The info is all they wanted. I decided to come forward out of fear others could be victimized in the same way. You cannot protect others is what I have learned because they do not care in my opinion.

I was recently a victim of a sexual assault. I went to the RCMP and reported my rape and the RCMP couldn't be bothered to even go and question my rapist. Lol
What kind of police investigation or justice is that? Lol
