The RCMP: In May of 1873, the first 150 North-West Mounted Police recruits were sent West to Manitoba, where they would begin a long legacy. In 1904, King Edward VII conferred the title of "Royal", making the force the Royal North-West Mounted Police.
In 1920, the Dominion Police Force and RNWMP merged, creating the modern RCMP. Today the RCMP encompasses over 30,000 personnel including about 19,000 officers or"regular members". In addition to responding to 911 calls and basic law enforcement in many jurisdictions, the RCMP has a mandate to deal with major crime investigations, terrorism, illicit drugs, economic crimes and offences that threaten the integrity of Canada's national borders.
