The Greater Sudbury Police Pipe Band was inaugurated in the summer of 1988 at the opening ceremonies of the World Junior Games. It began with a small group consisting of four pipers and six drummers.

Founding members included the late Constable Larry Kilby, retired Staff Sergeant Dave Linney, and the late Don Farquharson. The pipe band is under the direction of pipe major Rolf "Rocky" Larson. The Band wears the "Ramsey" tartan in honour of William Ramsey, master surveyor and founding father of the City of Greater Sudbury, and it also happens to be blue, which symbolizes the "police" aspect of the Band.

The band attends between 80 and 100 events per year including parades throughout Northern Ontario and the National Police Memorial in Ottawa. They practice every Monday evening at a local high school and have grown considerably since 1988. The Band currently consists of 25 members including a pipe major, fifteen pipers, seven drummers, and two drum majors.

The Greater Sudbury Police Pipe Band proudly represents the police service. If you would like to book the services of the pipe band at any event, from solo piping to full band performances, feel free to contact us.
