Officers Join 'The Force' in Scotland

 - Apr 18, 2009   Updated: Jun 23 2011
Following the largest rise in modern religious movements, police in Scotland have now admitted to joining the Jedi Order, listing their official religion as Jedi. Overall there are eight police officers and two staff that are claiming to be ones with The Force.

The Strathclyde police force is the first to admit that The Force is strong within their ranks. They can now proudly unite their efforts to thwart the Dark Side along with the Jedi Chimp, Jedi Hamster and the Light Saber Squirrels in the gallery above.

Implications - It is amazing how the movie Star Wars has effected so many people in different ways. The police force in Scotland are not the only Jedi followers. A 2001 Census for England and Wales reads that an astonishing 390,000 people listed their religion as Jedi.
