The female police officers who have, until now, spoken about being sexually harassed/abused/assaulted and otherwise bullied have been mainly RCMP members and civilian employees.
Today, we talk to 28-year veteran, and recently retired, RCMP officer Rob Creasser, who is also the Media Relations Director for the Mounted Police Professional Association. Rob Creasser does not dispute that sexual harassment and bullying happen in the RCMP. In fact, he saw it while he was a police officer. Creasser blames this situation on RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson and senior officers who turn a blind eye to the toxic workplace the RCMP has become. He argues the RCMP needs an accredited Association to assure transparency and accountability. He also calls for collective bargaining for the RCMP, without the right to strike.
So what is going on within the RCMP, from the perspective of the Mounted Police Professional Association?
