Deadline Nearing to Submit RCMP Contract Feedback

In March 2012, the Province and the federal government signed the current 20-year RCMP contract. It calls for a review of substantive matters at five-year intervals. While the five-year period ends in April 2017, issues that local governments wish to submit to the Province for consideration as part of that review must be submitted well in advance.

Here are the issues that have been raised so far:

  • Impending new RCMP labour relations model and its potential impacts on costs and service delivery;
  • Cost implications of the national programs (e.g. dogs, cadet training) to local governments;
  • Clarifying the ability to provide provincially dictated integrated teams;
  • Adding stronger language around federal commitment to local policing; and,
  • Other cost drivers.

If local governments have issues they would like considered for the five-year review, they are asked to submit a letter from their council or board outlining the issue of concern to Bhar Sihota, UBCM Policy Analyst, no later than September 30, 2015.
