Police Pipes and Drums of Bergen of Bergen County

I have had the great honor and privilege in recent years to join with the Band and photographing their fine efforts. As a result, I have collected hundreds of photos of the group and have selected a sample for your viewing pleasure. The Police Pipes and Drums has been led for the past several years by an Honor Guard from the Paramus, New Jersey Police Department. The dedicated members of the Paramus Police are part of the Department’s commitment to play a major role in supporting civic activities.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC brings out many local dignitaries and personalities – plus the line of march includes many representatives of our military services. This exhibition includes samples of these scenes and the tremendous spectacle the Parade brings to New York. I know you will get much joy, as I do, in viewing this wonderful display of the outstanding team of talented members of the Bergen Police Pipes and Drums.
