In 2016, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson signed off on more than $1.7 million worth of bonuses for 90 senior officers, not including himself.

That works out to $295,514 divided up among six deputy commissioners, $596,669 for 28 assistant commissioners and $838,137 for 56 chief superintendents. That’s a nine per cent increase over their 2015 bonuses.
