Liaison officers

When the RCMP engages another country in pursuing major investigations, liaison officers can help. They maintain a link between Canadian law enforcement and the law enforcement agency of a host country. While they play a significant role in Canadian investigations that reach beyond our borders, liaison officers have no jurisdiction abroad. They can only advance Canadian investigations with the approval of foreign authorities.

Posting liaison officers to strategic locations around the world provides Canada with an international link that is crucial in today's policing environment. It also helps contribute to the safety and security of Canadians here at home.

Liaison officers:

  • Help major Canadian investigative inquiries in foreign countries
  • Maintain the exchange of criminal intelligence between the RCMP and foreign authorities
  • Provide help to foreign agencies in investigations that affect Canada
  • Coordinate and assist RCMP employees travelling abroad on official business
  • Represent the RCMP at international conferences and seminars
  • Help with training and capacity-building initiatives in foreign countries

Deployed to 28 countries, liaison officers and analysts deployed overseas work in strategic locations around the world. They act as the link between law enforcement agencies in Canada and in their host country. Being posted around the world allows liaison officers and analysts deployed overseas to share best practices and to communicate the RCMP's mission, vision and values.

Analysts deployed overseas

  • Develop and foster partnerships in their region.
  • Identify existing criminal issues of mutual concern.
  • Generate intelligence relevant to ongoing investigations with a connection to Canada.
  • Work in partnership with the liaison officer, international law enforcement agencies and foreign partners.
