North West Mounted Police
The RCMP - the Royal Canadian Mounted Police - was formed in 1920 by the merger of the Royal North West Mounted
Police (RNWMP, founded 1904) with the Dominion Police (founded 1868). The former was originally named the North-West
Mounted Police (NWMP, founded 1873), and was granted the prefix Royal by King Edward VII in 1904. Much of the present
organization's symbolism has been inherited from its days as the NWMP, including the distinctive scarlet serge tunic, paramilitary
heritage, regimental status and mythos as a frontier force.
