The Mounties' Crime Lab

Top of page

In this hypothetical "whodunit" the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show Fred Davis some of their behind-the-scenes work. While police chase and capture the bank robber, others are checking the scene of the crime for clues. A bullet is retrieved and, in the laboratories in Rockcliffe, Ontario, it is subjected to rigorous testing to determine if it was fired from the captured suspect's gun.
