Po­lice ser­vice de­clares ‘bag­pipe amnesty’

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A south­ern On­tario po­lice ser­vice has de­clared a “bag­pipe amnesty.” Ni­a­gara re­gional po­lice are call­ing on anyone with “an old set of bag­pipes ly­ing un­der a bed or tucked away in the at­tic” to turn them in. The force says the NRPS Pipe Band is run­ning out of bag­pipes and is hop­ing the pub­lic can help. It says its on­go­ing youth teach­ing pro­gram — called “The Big NOISE” — has a ros­ter of young pipers in need of in­stru­ments. Po­lice say it’s time to get the un­used bag­pipes back in ac­tion and the amnesty will give new life to old pipes.
