The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is the Canadian national police service and an agency of the Ministry of Public Safety Canada.
The RCMP has a detachment located in the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) which serves the municipality and surrounding communities.
The Whistler detachment of the RCMP is responsible for keeping residents and visiting guests safe by preserving the peace, upholding the law, and providing our community’s policing service.
Being a victim or witness to crime, violence or abuse is a role no one is prepared for, and not everyone will respond the same way to the same crime. In order to help residents and visitors address these situations, the Whistler RCMP established a Victim Services program in 2001, after receiving a grant from the province for crime victims in the community.
The Walk Safe campaign encourages pedestrians to understand safety hazards and to take simple precautions to ensure that they are visible walking through town and across roadways at night. The program aims to reduce serious and fatal accidents between vehicles and pedestrians in Whistler.
Auxiliary Constable Program
The RCMP Auxiliary Constable Program was first introduced in 1951 to enhance community policing and crime prevention initiatives. Today, there are more than 1,300 volunteers in the province contributing approximately 180,000 hours of volunteer service to the program. These men and women dedicate countless hours to their communities and to the detachments they support. The RCMP Auxiliary Constable Program offers specially trained volunteers the opportunity to contribute to their communities with experience they acquire from volunteering with the police.
Training for auxiliary members consists of approximately 150 hours of classroom, practical and police defensive techniques.
