New Hampshire Police Association Pipes & Drums
The New Hampshire Police Association Pipes & Drums was formed following the tragic death of New Hampshire State Police Sgt. James Noyes. Sgt. Noyes was shot and killed in October 1994, during a stand off with an armed barricaded subject. After the Boston Police Gaelic Column played at the funeral, a search was initiated for potential players to start a New Hampshire Police Pipe Band. In December 1994 several dedicated individuals from various police departments got together for their first practice at Memorial High School in Manchester
After 2 years of dedicated practice, the band made its official debut in 1996, playing at the New Hampshire Police Memorial in Concord. Since 1996 the band has continued to grow and now has over 25 playing members form over a dozen law enforcement agencies within the state of NH.
