Scope and content

They are assigned a four digit alpha-numeric code, called an OSR code which classifies a case by the most serious offence arising from an occurrence. The records include occurrence reports and supporting evidence.

Biography / Administrative history

The mounted party of 275 officers and men of the fledgling North-West Mounted police that left Fort Dufferin, Manitoba in 1874 were divided into six troops or divisions, identified by letters "A" through "F". A Division was initially located at Fort Edmonton. In 1875 it moved to Fort Saskatchewan. The Division was assigned to Fort Walsh in 1880-1881, and then, in 1883, it was relocated to Maple Creek where it remained for 37 years. In 1920, A Division was relocated to the National Capital Region where it is currently under the direction of the Deputy Commissioner Central Region. RCMP website,
