Biography / Administrative history
G Division was first established at Edmonton in 1885. The following year it was relocated in Fort Saskatchewan where it remained until 1910. The division was located in Edmonton from 1910 until 1934 when it was moved to Ottawa. In 1938 B Division, Yukon Territories, and G Division, Northwest Territories, were amalgamated and their headquarters was located in Ottawa (RCMP, Annual Report,1939, p. 45). Finally, in 1974, the headquarters of G Division was moved to Yellowknife where it is currently under the direction of the Deputy Commissioner North West Region. Northern detachments attached to G Division included posts at Lake Harbour, Chesterfield Inlet, Bache Peninsula and Fort Resolution. In 1903 the most northerly outpost was established on Herschel Island to provide services in the Mackenzie River Area under G Division (NWMP, Annual Report, 1903, pp. 43- 45). G Division is currently responsible for providing community policing services to the entire Northwest Territories. The headquarters is located in Yellowknife and is under the direction of the Deputy Commissioner North West Region. RG18 General Inventory and RCMP website,
