The 2nd annual Soaring Eagles Camp is accepting applications for 32 Indigenous youth who have a genuine interest in policing as a career.
Soaring Eagles is designed to simulate the same physical and intellectual training regular members receive in Depot. The week-long camp will take place at K division headquarters from August 4-9, and will be offered to First Nation, Metis and Inuit youth between the ages of 16-19-years-old who embody the RCMP spirit.
Cadets receive instruction on many different areas of the RCMP, getting visits from different units including major crimes and canine, fitness classes and drilling instruction.
"Experiences like these open doors for building trust and reconciliation with the Indigenous communities, all while representing the changing face of the RCMP," said Sgt. Kimberly Mueller, Indigenous Recruiting.
The Alberta RCMP invites members of the public to encourage eligible candidates to apply.
All applications are to be submitted to Indigenous Recruiting by June 1, 2019, via email
Cost of the program is free.
