“Without the public trust, you are not going to be effective in your core business”, emphasizes the Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson, talks about his number one challenge, and says,

Public trust. I don’t think people know how urgent it is in our organization. I’ve had officers say to me when I travel that they don’t like to talk about what they do sometimes when they go to new areas, when they are with their neighbors….The lion’s share of our members and employees, day in day out, come in and do enormous public service to Canadians. I can’t be seen as the new leader to be running around and saying the place is falling down. I have to be persuasive in making the case to everybody, those 90 percent of employees, and say I can’t do this by myself. So all of us got to go to those folks and we got to knock ‘em on the head….Without the public trust, you are not going to be effective in your core business. If people don’t have some confidence in our ability to close investigations-market enforcement investigations, homicide, and organized crime cases-they are not going to participate.”

  1. police and public will have to trust each other and work together to create a healthy society. But sadly, in most places they are arm-twisted by powerful people to act against the society, as a result the society loses their faith!

    Police forces all over the world should be controlled by society not politicians or other thugs.

    • You are so right Sharmi, relationship of mutual trust between public and law enforcement agencies is a must for a healthy and prosperous society. Sadly situation in most of the cases is the opposite and hence a lot of understanding on both sides is essential for further improvement. Honorable Bob Paulson is one such leader who has opened an atmosphere of a dialogue so that such issues are discussed openly for future practical solutions. Acknowledgement of the existence of this problem is the first step towards improvement in relationship on both sides. We are very proud of our Honorable Commissioner who is a dynamic leader and proponent of a great change in our society. We hope for the best. Take care and God bless my dear friend.

    • Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for sharing my post with your blogger friends. You are always very kind and generous. I agree with you and at the same time I feel the outward image of our law enforcement emanating power is essential to fight sophisticated criminals on the street but more efforts have to be made to improve mutual trust between public and law enforcement. Efforts have to be on both sides and more so on the public side. Take care and God bless.

    • Pleasure is mine Jill. I agree with you this statement is very powerful yet so true and sad. Our Honorable Commissioner is the first leader who wants to talk about the issues that are crucial for the public and the law enforcement. This is the beginning of the first step to bring about a great change. We are hoping for the best and fully trust our leader. You take care and God bless.
