Senate Bill 193, would specifically authorize the Briarwood Presbyterian Church, which has more than 4,000 members, to hire its own police force that would be “invested with all of the powers of law enforcement officers in this state.”

Last month the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the bill that would authorize Briarwood Presbyterian Church to employ its own police force.

Experts say a church with its own police department would be unprecedented in the U.S.

Critics worry embarrassing crimes like the sexual abuse of children and others, as well as illegal drug use, would be covered up by a police force loyal to the church rather than the law.
