Is there a bonafide reason for this?

I their mind perhaps this is a way to "make up" for all the negative press the RCMP has received from female members laely?

Mounties aim to recruit female officers

CBC News

Posted:Jul 11, 2013 1:19 PM ET

The Mounties are looking for a few good women.

The RCMP headquarters in Winnipeg was the scene of a noon-hour recruiting lunch to launch the careers of new female Mounties.

Their pitch: A career nowhere near ordinary.

Prospective police had a chance to meet current female officers and members from a variety of different specializations.

More than 31 per cent of people the RCMP enrolled between April 2012 and Jan. 31 were women, and the police force currently consists of 21 per cent women, officials say.

The RCMP currently has a goal of recruiting 35 per cent women for now, but officials hope to raise that objective to 50 per cent after about two years.

The force says it hopes that upwards of 30 per cent of its regular members will be women by the year 2025.

Recruiting 35%?
Sounds like a challenge, considering females make up about 5-10% of the applicant pool.

All it will mean is that they'll hire the best of the female applicants rather than the best of the applicants. Hmmm... Still sounds unfair.

So what is considered 'accelerated'? Instead of a year and a half or so they'll speed women through in 14 months?

Last time it was 90 days from writing RPAT to Depot date.
I have couple of buddies who went from 0 to being on the road in 10 months.

I don't know how they can do that with the amount of applicants that apply. :dubious:

Wow...that's fast. I can see that being attractive. I thought my agency was pretty quick but less than six months from app to beginning of training is rare.

How can they accelerate the background investigation and SC without compromise to detail?
