BRIEF HISTORY: In 1874 the North West Mounted Police (NWMP) began an historic journey know as “The March West”. Three hundred men left Dufferin, Manitoba and survived great hardships, to finally arrive in Southern Alberta several months later. The first fort built by the NWMP was Fort Macleod, named after Colonel James Macleod, their Commanding Officer. A town gradually built up around the fort and became the Town of Fort Macleod. The NWMP, the Royal North West Mounted Police and the present day Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been providing policing services to Fort Macleod and Canada since 1873.
