The RCMP is hiring at a job fair at the downtown police detachment on Thursday, Nov. 24.
The career presentation is geared towards allowing Red Deer-area residents to find out more about joining the RCMP through meeting recruiters and hearing about real-life career experiences from police officers.
A recruiting officer will outline the application process, benefits and rewards of a career in policing, provide advice and answer questions at the career presentation from 6 p.m. at the RCMP Red Deer Detachment, 4602 51 Ave.
The RCMP has been around since 1873. To keep serving communities, “we need police officers from all backgrounds who are physically fit, up for a challenge and ready to make a difference wherever they’re posted,” states an email from the department.
Const. Troy Savinkoff of RCMP K-Division, said recruiting is a regular thing with Alberta RCMP. But the recruiting unit is just getting back to doing in-person events after the pandemic.
Job fairs are being planned at various communities throughout the province. Savinkoff said there are some physical requirements to joining the force, but the aim is to recruit men and women of various ethnicities.
