My late father-in-law Ted Brue was in the British Columbia Provincial Police 1941-1950 and then transferred to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police where he remained until he retired as a Staff-Sergeant in 1970. As a result, my wife and I like to attend RCMP events. Their full-dress scarlet tunics just happen to be very photogenic.
