Law Enforcement

The RCMP’s mandate, as outlined in section 18 of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act, is multi-faceted. It includes preventing and investigating crime; maintaining peace and order; enforcing laws; contributing to national security; ensuring the safety of state officials, visiting dignitaries and foreign missions; and providing vital operational support services to other police and law enforcement agencies within Canada and abroad.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is the Canadian national police service and an agency of the Ministry of Public Safety Canada.

The RCMP is unique in the world since it is a national, federal, provincial and municipal policing body. We provide a total federal policing service to all Canadians and policing services under contract to the three territories, eight provinces (except Ontario and Quebec), more than 150 municipalities, more than 600 Aboriginal communities and three international airports.

Canadians often see RCMP police officers wearing their dress uniform, the red serge, at functions and events. Officers traditionally wear this uniform during Royal tours, official visits of foreign dignitaries, Canada Day and to honour those who have served.

Police officers proudly represent the RCMP and Canada at many ceremonial events, functions and speaking engagements – often above and beyond their regular daily duty.

The Broadview Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police which serves Grenfell has two locations, the main office in Broadview and a sub office is located to the south in Kipling.

On average there are 10 officers, including the Staff Sargent, stationed in the Broadview detachment and 3 stationed out of the Kipling office. The Traffic Services Unit as of 2016 had 4 members which may be increased over time.
