Notts Police Pipe Band, Nottingham, England. (NPPB for short) based in Nottingham in the East Midlands of England. Whilst bearing the name and informal support of the Nottinghamshire Police, and the support of the Chief Constable in particular, the Pipe Band is actually composed mainly of civilians and is largely independent of the Police Authority as such. (See the History link for more detailed background). That said, the band is happy and proud to act as a public relations unit for the Nottinghamshire Police whenever possible upon their request. We are currently graded 4B within the structure of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association.
