In a new recruitment campaign video for the RNC, images of the force's "Public Order Unit" are used to entice new recruits. In 2008 members of the Toronto Police Service visited St. John's to train RNC officers in "crowd control". At the time, Sgt. Russ Cook of the Toronto Police Service told The Telegram, "The whole philosophy around public order is crowd management. We have the ability to go out and meet and greet the people we're dealing with, and then we work on the basis of gradual application of force." Photo: gornc.ca
