Over 990 RCMP Members are proud to provide policing services to communities across Nova Scotia.

Nearly half of the province’s police officers are RCMP Members.

Our Members serve in 53 detachments in 40 municipalities and 13 indigenous communities.

Together they answer on average over 140,000 calls for service annually (2013-2022). 

The federal government pays 30% of the provincial taxpayers’ policing cost, which represents a ~ $74 million contribution.  

63% of Nova Scotians agree that they benefit from the federal contribution of the cost of RCMP policing (Pollara, Sept. 2023). 

74% of Nova Scotians served by the RCMP are satisfied with the policing service they receive.  

Only 14% of Nova Scotians would prefer the RCMP to have less control over local policing. (Pollara, Sept. 2023). 

Less than half (46%) of Nova Scotians say that they are adequate resourced for policing in their community (Pollara, Sept. 2023).

Quality policing requires investments to ensure Members have the resources to tackle evolving situations and changing needs of Nova Scotians. 

RCMP Members provide multiple specialized services to municipalities in Nova Scotia, no matter the size.
