Under the direction of Pipe Major Patrick Sullivan, the CPD P&D marches down Superior Ave. on St. Patrick’s Day
Taking their unique and stirring blend of music and marching skills public, these law enforcement kilted ambassadors have represented the LE community of NE Ohio, the Division of Police, and the City of Cleveland in a grand manner. Travelling throughout Ohio, the U.S., Canada and Ireland at their own expense, the members practice on their own time, purchase their own instruments and perform in support of countless charitable causes and civic events, including this year the West Park Independence Day Parade, Shannon McBride Memorial Scholarship Fund, “Operation Open Heart,” the International Senior Games Opening Ceremony, just to name a few.
In addition to supporting charitable causes and civic events, their members also participate in the rendering of final honors to police officers throughout Ohio and surrounding states who die in the line of duty, and members of armed forces from our region killed during service to our country when they are returned home for being laid to rest.
