Most recommendations from Moncton shootings report complete: RCMP

Changes come after the shooting deaths of three Mounties in Moncton, N.B. in 2014


 

The RCMP say they have completed 42 recommendations stemming from the shooting deaths of three Mounties in Moncton, N.B.

It’s been just over a year since the force accepted all 64 recommendations in a report by retired assistant commissioner Alphonse MacNeil.

In his review of the June 2014 shootings, MacNeil called for better access to shotguns and rifles, and training to better prepare supervisors for critical incidents.

He also called for standard equipment for emergency response teams and improvements in radio communication.

The review highlighted a number of problems the Mounties faced when they were searching for Justin Bourque, who was arrested 28 hours after killing three officers and wounding two more.

RCMP Deputy Commissioner Janice Armstrong says they expect to complete another 10 recommendations by April.
