The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (or Mounties, as they are sometimes nicknamed) interest me. In 1873, they were founded. Their bright red coat sets them apart from any other police force. They were instructed to make peace with Indians instead of fighting or starting wars. Often, they helped deliver babies, acted as a doctor, distributed medicine, engaged in daily conversation with the natives, and had a big overall part in their community. Their posts often rotated, and a Mountie would never know how long he would be in one particular spot.

King Edward VII allowed them to be named the Royal North West Mounted Police in the year of 1904. Sixteen years later, they switched names again, this time to Royal shuttle Paris Canadian Mounted Police. And after that, the dress uniform was the traditional red coat. They opted for a more practical brown coat for everyday work that was easier to keep clean.

How do you write about the Mounties in a way that captures their essence and huge daily jobs?

This story seems interesting, thank you for your share :)
