This study addresses the contribution of the department of Preforming Arts and Film, Makerere University, to the development of the Uganda Police Force (UPF) Band. To do this, the researcher identified the alumni of PAF who work with UPF, especially the Band, to examine their contributions towards the development of this band. I used a qualitative research methodology for data collection. In employing this methodology, I interacted with my respondents to share their experiences and views about this topic. This methodology demanded that I use interviewing, recording, participant observation and documentary analysis to gather data. This study established that PAF has contributed immensely towards the development of UPF Band. This contribution can be seen through the training of officers in music theory and practicals, which they apply during the Band’s performances. The officers also acquire leadership skills, as they interact with fellow students and lecturers, which they have transferred into the Band. Therefore, to understand how the UPF Band has developed, one needs to put into consideration the contribution of different stakeholders.
