I recently bought these two RCMP ERT patches represented here from an overseas buyer. I could not see anything comparable on the gallery under RCMP, and was wondering about their authenticity. The coat of arms looks a little simplistic compared to other crests that have been authenticized. Would any member be able to give some advice. Still like the look of them. The closest on the Gallery were ca-rcmp police p-212, ca-rcmp police p-213, ca-rcmp police p-210

Mayor Doug McCallum won election on the campaign promise to create a municipal police force in 2018 and the newly elected city council voted to terminate Surrey's contract with the RCMP. The B.C. government approved the change in February and appointed the board in June to oversee the new police service in Surrey, one of the province's fastest-growing cities. But the process caused a rift in the mayor's own civic political party as three members resigned from the Safe Surrey Coalition last year, citing concerns about costs of the new service and McCallum's approach. A 450-page report by former B.C. attorney general Wally Oppal concluded the shift to a civic police force would increase the operating budget by 10.9 per cent in 2021, taking into account the loss of federal subsidies and achieving wage parity with the Mounties. That's on top of millions of dollars in one-time capital investments Surrey must make in order to set up the new police department that's expected to "go live" on April 1 next year. Oppal's report says Surrey is an outlier as the only municipality in Canada with more than 300,000 residents that doesn't have its own police force, which would allow the city to better adapt to the community's unique needs and growth. Among the first items on the agenda today is a motion to create the Surrey Police Service, followed by committee assignments. The next board meeting is set for Sept. 15. A release from the police board says its nine members are tasked with hiring a chief constable, setting policies, overseeing the service's budget and assuming responsibility for any complaints. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Aug. 6, 2020.
Are these real badges? I have an officer that was not part of the operation telling me he thinks that they are repros. In his opinion they are way too heavy and they should have a hallmark at the back, which they don't. He also thinks that the font of the badges should be the same. Can anyone tell if they are real or repros? They are in fact heavy and look way too big to wear on a belt as and identification badge. They measure 7,6cm x 7,6cm (3in x 3in) and are 3mm (1/8in) thick. Let me know!!
