May 18, 2023, Ottawa, Ont. – The RCMP is releasing its Transparency and Trust Strategy and Action Plan to the public.

The RCMP recognizes that policing today is different than it was five years ago. Public trust in policing has decreased. The RCMP is taking action to be more open and transparent, while building and strengthening trust in law enforcement.

The RCMP is working to improve transparency to create an organization that is more open, trusted, efficient and responsive. The RCMP’s plan is to provide Canadians, stakeholders and partners with valuable information. This will encourage open dialogue, enhance trust and accountability, and help to improve community policing services.

A key component in achieving these goals is public engagement. Any time the RCMP posts information or data on the Open Government portal, there is an opportunity for the public to comment and provide feedback in the comments section. We encourage Canadians to get involved and we will increase ways in which they can do so.
