Canadian Long Arm of the Law Marches over the Miles
Date posted: June 1, 2017
Yet another Canadian Pipe band is returning to “the old country” to join the growing number of International and national attendees.
The Peel Regional Police Pipe Band (PRPPB) was formed in 1976 and is based in Brampton, Ontario. The band wears the Ancient MacPherson tartan and the unique diced glengarries – which are symbolically worn by police pipe bands around the world.
The band was promoted to Grade 1 in 1992 and 2017 will mark the band’s 25th anniversary at the premier grade
The PRPPB currently has 40+ members who come from all walks of life and bring an indeterminate amount of experience with them. Their members are engineers, students, teachers, H.R. and medical professionals to name but a few and all are tremendous individuals who share the common goal of being a world-class grade 1 pipe band.
The band continues to exist thanks to the ongoing support of the Peel Regional Police Service and Chief of Police Jennifer Evans and are proud of their long history with them. Each year the band participates in a number of events on behalf of the Peel Regional Police Service. These events include recruit graduation ceremonies, awards and promotion ceremonies and community events, however none are more important then our participation in the Ontario Police Memorial at Queens Park each spring and the National Peace Officer’s Memorial on Parliament Hill in Ottawa in the fall. These two events pay tribute to police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.
Bridge of Allan Highland Games is looking forward to welcoming them back to our great event.
