Glasgow Police Pipe Band Change Their Name

The Greater Glasgow Police Scotland Pipe Band have announced a revision of  their name. Niall West, Band Manager: ‘The new name is simply, Glasgow Police Pipe Band. The band will continue to operate under the Police Scotland logo and entertain and support the community as an integral part of Police Scotland.

‘The rationale behind  the change is that the new name better reflects the band’s heritage and, simply,  is less cumbersome. The previous name Greater Glasgow Police Scotland Pipe Band, coined in April 2013, took its name from one territorial Police Division (the geographical ‘home’  of the band) of the then newly formed Police Scotland,  whereas we feel the band connects with a far wider community.

‘We have also reconstructed our website which can be found at’
