Gets first-hand look at RCMP Depot's world class training facility
REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - March 10, 2014) - Public Safety Canada
The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, was in Regina today to visit RCMP Academy "Depot" Division's facilities and participate in the Troop 15 graduation ceremony.
Since 2006, the Harper Government has made significant investments in order to help the RCMP upgrade and expand its infrastructure, including the RCMP Academy in Regina. This funding has enabled the RCMP to further develop its state-of-the-art training facility, thereby ensuring that cadets develop and maintain the skills required to protect Canadians.
"Our Government is taking strong action to ensure that law enforcement has the training and resources in place to keep our streets and communities safe. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to visit RCMP "Depot" Division's training facility in Regina where, since 2006, we have made significant investments in order to help the RCMP upgrade and expand its infrastructure. Depot's state-of-the-art training facilities teach RCMP cadets not only how to physically carry out their duties, but also how to make split-second decisions when faced with a dangerous situation. This new generation of officers will play an important role in keeping Canadians safe in the years to come."
