Civilian Review and Complaints Commission says it has no way of knowing whether RCMP followed through

The RCMP says it has implemented about 22 recommendations made by the civilian watchdog agency over the last fiscal year, but the status of dozens more recommendations regarding Mountie misconduct is not known.

The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC) is called upon hundreds of times a year to investigate public complaints about RCMP activity, ranging from claims of bad behaviour to allegations of botched investigations. If the CRCC concludes a finding of wrongdoing is founded, it can make recommendations to the RCMP, although they are not binding.

Citing a need for more transparency, the national police force has started to post the status of some of those recommendations online.

So far, the RCMP has posted 101 recommendations stemming from about a dozen different cases reviewed by the CRCC during the last fiscal year. The RCMP claims that about 21 per cent of those recommendations are “completed”; most of the remainder are recorded as “in progress” while a handful are said to be partially completed.
