England Calling
In 1992 while watching telly (TV) in England, Hot Pursuit’s D.A.R.E. Video played on the screen. A group of Bobbies (Police Officers) were watching with interest. They thought they could start a police band just like Hot Pursuit. A correspondence started between the two groups resulting in a visit to Columbus, Ohio by the British Band. Officer Rick Gillilan played host to the band while here in Ohio. During the same period, several other U.S. Police Departments contacted CPD about having their own band.
