How Canada’s Iconic Mountie Uniforms Are Made | Boot Camp

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or “Mounties,” are known for their iconic uniforms that feature the iconic scarlet tunic referred to as the “Red Serge.”

Senior video correspondent Graham Flanagan visited the RCMP Academy Depot Division in Regina, Saskatchewan where future Mounties are trained and issued their uniform “kit.”

While modern Mounties’ everyday uniforms are more in line with standard police attire, the wool and satin-lined Red Serge is still used for ceremonial events. Each cadet gets fitted for their tunic about halfway through training.

We visited the tailor shop where a team of 20 tailors performs the alterations for the approximately 1,000 cadets that graduate from the Academy each year. We also stopped by the leather shop, where leather crafters custom-fit each pair of high-leather Strathcona boots before being issued to the cadets.

What Canadian Mounties Go Through At Boot Camp

We got an inside look at the intense 26-week training program that all future Mounties must endure before officially joining the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Senior video correspondent Graham Flanagan spent five days at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division in Regina, Saskatchewan where he observed different troops at various stages of training. The training is focused on mastering police procedure, but cadets are also put through intense physical challenges, such as entering a gas chamber and enduring a “uniform run” with a dog handler in sub-zero temperatures. Male and female cadets train together at Depot, and even square off against each other in Police Defensive Tactics training. The future Mounties also learn about RCMP customs and traditions dating back to the 19th century, culminating with the Regimental Dinner — a ceremony that, according to the RCMP, media had not been allowed to attend before this film shoot.
