Aug. 16, 2022, Regina, Sask. – Saskatchewan RCMP’s Proactive Recruiting Team invited students in grades 10 to 12 with an interest in a future policing career to come learn more about what it might be like to be an RCMP officer. The three ‘Spend a Day with an RCMP Recruite’ events were held in Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert in early July.

Participants travelled from all around the province and from many other places in between.

The Fitness and Health Promotion Unit put the future recruits to the test by having them do obstacle courses and parts of the PARE. The PARE (Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation) is required to be completed by all cadets within their first two weeks at Depot.

The Emergency Response Team gave an in-depth presentation on the responsibilities of their unit and gave the students the hands-on experience of trying on parts of their kit (or uniform).


The Police Dog Services demonstration was popular amongst the students – they had lots of questions for handler Cpl. Matatall and his Police Service Dog, Jaxx, and Cst. Maynard and his PSD-in-training.

Those who participated in the Regina session also took a trolley tour of Depot – getting to meet some of the cadets and seeing some scenario-based training in action.

The students got to hear first-hand from experts in a number of other specialized areas within the RCMP – such as our Major Crime Unit, General Investigative Section, Crime Reduction Team, Traffic Services, Federal and Serious Organized Crime, National Security, and more.
