The Delta Police Pipe Band was formed in 1971 by members of the Delta Police Department.
In honour of the co-founder of the Pipe Band, the late Chief Constable Mervyn W. Smith, the Band wears the predominantly green and blue Ancient Smith Tartan, along with full highland dress with feather bonnets.
The Band has grown to its present strength of 55 (33 pipers and 22 drummers).
The Pipe Major is Cliff Fournier with Bill O’Donnell the Drum Major.
