RCMP accepted poorly qualified applicants: Report


You’d think the RCMP would recruit the best and the brightest in policing. However, an internal audit found the Mounties have accepted applicants who were poorly qualified and some even with criminal records, Blacklock’s Reporter reported. The audit said the RCMP appeared to put more emphasis on “the quantity of applicants with less focus on the quality.” In the report, 38 randomly selected successful applications were examined. Auditors found four that had failed a police aptitude test “multiple times,” two were rejected by other police forces and “one was previously rejected by the RCMP five times.”
