He was there to make good on another campaign promise.


Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in Regina yesterday and made the announcement that more than 600 new, full time officers and close to 400 support personnel are being added to the RCMP over the next two years.


He also announced that the Government of Canada will upgrade the RCMP Training Academy (Depot Division) in Regina.


The RCMP Academy, Depot Division, is the exclusive recruit-training center for Canada’s National Law Enforcement Organization.


The Prime Minister says the government is delivering on its commitment to get tough on crime.
