This newest duly-constituted public safety organization, the wake and district public safety pipes and drums is a growing band drawing membership from the entire public safety community in the greater Raleigh area.
The band performs privately, publicly, and competes across North America (G3, G4 and G5).
We take great pride in all we have accomplished and realize there is always a higher level of excellence to be achieved. We strive to be humble and grateful for our members, our collective talents, our hard work, and the opportunities we have to perform and grow.
Our mission is to provide a distinguished tribute FOR OUR FALLEN comrades – and to be of service to the family, friends and co-workers of public safety employees of Raleigh, Wake County and all those who serve and protect in the State of North Carolina.
We desire to strengthen relations between the protective services
and the public and to preserve cultural heritage
and enrich our community by providing traditional
Bagpipe and Drum music.
Today, the sound of the pipes together with the slow beat of the drums have come to be a distinguishing feature of a fallen hero’s funeral.
