Improve accountability, transparency and conduct

No one is above the law, including those who are sworn to uphold it. The RCMP is committed to having in place a fair, transparent, effective and modern system that addresses the conduct of our employees. We will ensure that employees are held to account and the consequences are meaningful and rehabilitative.

As part of our modernization plan, we have committed to respond more efficiently to concerns and complaints, to be more open and transparent with our information, and to be accountable for our actions always.
