After competing at the Cambridge Highland Games and taking home fourth place and placing fifth at the Maxville Highland Games, the Durham Regional Police Pipe Band returned to top spot as they competed at the Fergus Highland Games on August 11, 2012.
In a field of 10 bands the Durham Regional Police Pipe Band got back on top by placing first for the fourth time in six competitions. Previous first place wins this summer included the Georgetown Highland Games, the Embro Highland Games and the Kincardine Scottish Festival.
Formed in 1996, the band has performed at formal police ceremonies, local parades and pipe band competitions. The group has travelled across the province to compete at various highland games and works hard to represent dedication and team work for the service.
The Durham Regional Police Pipe Band will be competing in their final Highland Games at Almonte on August 25, 2012. The group will also be joining police bands from across the country in parade at the Canadian Police Memorial in Ottawa on Sunday Sept. 30, 2012.
