Local Teen Gets a View of Life in the RCMP

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: An 18-year old Picture Butte girl who's just starting out in the Criminal Justice program at Lethbridge College, has a much better idea of where she wants to aim her career after a special experience last month.

 

Mariah Leusink was among 32 teens from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the North West Territories to get to spend a week at RCMP Depo in Regina. It was part of a program that works to teach young adults more about the police force, in the hopes that they may decide to pursue a job with the RCMP.

 

Leusink noted that it was a great experience that just reinforced how much she wants to be a part of the RCMP in the future. She also went on to describe the major lessons she learned there, "They put us through a lot of what a normal cadet would do during the week. You really learn that there's a lot of teamwork that goes into the RCMP and that there's self discipline for sure, because you've got to get yourself going and keep going."

 

Of course she also acknowledged the most challenging part of the program, "The physical part was tough, like to have to double-time everywhere. You have to earn your different parts of clothing to be able to march and stuff like that. And I figure just that physical part of going, going every day was tough."
