On July 27, Commissioner Lucki sent out a Force-wide communication marking her first 100 days as Commissioner, committing to transparent, accountable leadership and information-sharing, and seeking ideas from members on how to modernize the RCMP. Her note indicated this information will be used as input to a five-year modernization plan for the RCMP.
Commissioner Lucki’s specific question to us is: “If I could modernize the RCMP, what would I do?”. She has asked for constructive ideas that can contribute to change.
The NPF is cognizant that many members may not feel comfortable emailing the Commissioner directly or bringing forward concerns that need to be addressed.
Although the NPF will be sharing our ideas about how the RCMP should modernize based on information and concerns you’ve entrusted to us and our own experience, we also want to hear from you on this specific topic to help gather and advance your thoughts to the Commissioner.
If you’re comfortable emailing the Commissioner directly, the email is: RCMP.Commissioner-Commissaire.GRC@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
If you’d prefer to share your comments or suggestions unattributed through the NPF, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas by August 21. We will vet personal information, collate and forward these to the Commissioner on your behalf.
We expect to receive information about certification voting dates soon and will continue to keep you posted on related progress. We hope you’re enjoying some family time this summer.
