  • RCMP - Swapping Red For Blue

    I have read the same story in other places and it is sad to see, the RCMP is/was a renowned national police force and from the reader's comments from within the attached news report it is obvious that all is not well within the RCMP.

    I just met a couple RCMP guys on an assignment, we were talking about this issue. Not much different from anywhere else. Folks are going to leave for agencies who offer more money.

      The Prestige and fancy dress uniform does not put food on the table.

        G'day Sleuth, respects to a fellow long time O.com member.

        Fair go mate, the RCMP red serge goes back a long way and is steeped in Canadian Police history and you as an American should be the last one to talk about 'prestige and fancy dress uniforms'. I could give heaps of examples but here is just one; a dicky bow for heavens sake!!!!

                I'd rather wear the WSP or NYSP uniform than all the high vis fluro vests over cheap crappy shirts and pants we have to wear.

                    JohnKelly, G'Day to you - we much enjoyed Oz when we were therein 1991.

                    And I can talk, as I never, ever wore a uniform. I was a plain clothes investigator (or instigator, take your pick) my entire career.

                    My vote for the absolute worst uniform goes to the Rhode Island State police winter uniform of the 1970's. A brown leather long jacket, with black flaps on the pockets, black Sam brown belt worn over the top, and huge leather gauntlets rather than gloves. The creaked like a saddle on a horse with every step. They must have had to remove the entire outfit to use the loo!
