The band holds practice every Wednesday from 19:00 hrs to 21:00 hrs at the Multi-Purpose Training Facility at the RCMP Training Academy, "Depot" Division, Regina.

 

The RCMP Regina Pipes & Drums was formed on 24 September, 2001, under the authority of The Commanding Officer, "F" Division, Royal Canadian Mounted Police. It is based at the RCMP Training Academy, "Depot" Division in Regina, and serves both it and, "F", Division. The band is a regular feature of the Summer Sunset Ceremonies at "Depot", the RCMP Memorial Service, and the Canadian Police and Peace Officers‘ Memorial Service. As well as providing music for police functions, it also participates in other parades, concerts, awards ceremonies, and fairs throughout the region. The band's sponsors include the Force, the Regina area RCMP Officers' Mess, the General Mess, as well as the RCMP Regina Veterans' Association.

The band is open to civilians, as well as regular members of the Force, and consists of men and women of all ages, and from all walks of life. The RCMP has 8 pipe bands spread across Canada, and as part of the wider RCMP Pipe Band system, the Regina RCMP Band regularly sends contingents to play in the Nova Scotia International Tattoo, the Calgary Stampede Parade, and any number of other occasions when the bands join each other. Elements of the band have played in Ottawa, Las Vegas and at Windsor Castle. The band teaches and has a number of adult learners on both bagpipes and drums. We provide instruction and also draw from the local pipe band community for workshops. The Regina RCMP Pipe Band does not currently compete, and practices on Wednesday nights at "Depot" Division.
