- 79% of Nova Scotians served by the RCMP are satisfied with the police service they receive.
- Only 13% of Nova Scotians would prefer the RCMP to have less control over local policing.
- 66% of Nova Scotians agrees that they benefit from the federal contribution of 30% of the cost of RCMP policing.
- 74% of Nova Scotians think policing in Nova Scotia needs to be better coordinated among various police organizations.
