LONDON (AFP) – A police officer in Scotland has confessed to following the Jedi faith beloved of Star Wars film fans, respected policing analysis group Jane's reported Thursday.
Pam Fleming, a 45-year-old beat officer in Glasgow for Strathclyde Police, said that she thought all police officers "should be Jedis," when interviewed by Jane's Police Review.
"For me, it is not a joke," she said. "Being a Jedi is a way of life.
"I love the Star Wars films and the concept of being a Jedi, that the faith is not divisive."
Fleming said she knew of other Jedis in Strathclyde Police -- the force apparently has eight in total.
According to Britain's Office for National Statistics, a total of 390,000 people in England and Wales listed their religion as Jedi in the most recent census in 2001. Scotland has a reported 14,000 followers.
But it noted that this may have been largely due to an Internet campaign launched in the run-up to the census. Jedi followers are grouped under atheist.

Please tell me she does not get to keep her job.
