The production, which began filming on August 10, was intended to capture the variety and uniqueness of policing in our territory and depict the day-to-day challenges and resulting rewards of policing in the Yukon. The goal was to produce a documentary series that offered insight into the vastness and rich history of the Yukon show how RCMP employees and their families engage with their communities.

On August 16, the RCMP temporarily suspended its participation in the production. This allowed the parties involved to carefully consider the concerns and issues raised during the first days of filming.

While the RCMP believes it is important to convey the complexities of policing in the Yukon and highlight the successful relationships that make this possible, the RCMP has concluded that it is unable to continue to participate in this production. We have now taken the necessary steps to formally terminate our agreement with the production company
