The police pipe and drum band standing together for a group photo

30 Years and Counting

Since 1988, the York Regional Police Pipes and Drums have proudly represented York Region, its diverse communities and the police service both locally and internationally. We are committed to being a professional pipe band in everything we do, from simple street parades to playing for royalty.

The band strives to improve continually and as such employs world-class instructors to work with both the pipe and drum corps. While we welcome all ability levels, a minimum Grade 4 proficiency is both suggested and preferred. Once the volunteer application process has been completed, minimum attendance expectations and musical proficiency requirements are in place before any kit is issued.

The Pipes and Drums operate under the permission of Chief Eric Jolliffe and are currently under the musical direction of Pipe Major Michael Giles. Mr. Giles is the former Pipe Major of the Calgary Highlanders Regiment and Triumph Street Pipe Band Grade 3.
