Description : While in Regina, you should visit the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Museum, located on the grounds of their Training Academy Depot.

Born out of a need for a national police force to enforce the law in Canada’s newly acquired western territories, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has evolved into a world-renowned organization of more than 20,000 people.

In May 1873, the Parliament of Canada established a central police force. One hundred and fifty recruits were sent west to Manitoba. The new police force gradually acquired the name North West Mounted Police (NWMP).

In July 1874, the 275 mounted police officers marched west headed for southern Alberta, where American whisky traders were operating among the aboriginal people.
