Special Ops - Journal of the Elite Forces & SWAT Units Vol.4

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is Canada's federal police force and is also contracted to serve as the police force for all provinces (except Ontario and Quebec), the two territories, and nearly 200 municipalities; approximately fifty percent of its members are engaged in provincial and municipal policing. The RCMP, under the Federal RCMP Act, enforces throughout Canada laws made by, or under, the authority of the Canadian Parliament. Administration of justice within the provinces, including enforcement of the Criminal Code, is part of the power and duty delegated to the provincial governments. The RCMP is also involved in counter-intelligence and counter-espionage operations, as well as counter-terrorist investigations and operations. It is responsible for law and order from the arctic to the American border, from the Atlantic to Pacific oceans. It is once of the most diverse and high-tech police departments in the world.
