One of the biggest churches in Alabama, the Briarwood Presbyterian of Birmingham, is introducing a state law that would allow its two campuses to have a dedicated police force of its choosing. This does not come as a surprise as Briarwood is considered to be one of the largest churches in the state of Alabama. Thousands of people come to their events and not many would argue that police would be benficial to have in events with such a large magnitude of people.

With that said, on the contrary, one could argue that police officers should be involved in more important matters as opposed to supervising a session at a church. The law states that they would be able to choose the number of police officers that they would want at their events and that could be an issue because it could take away from security and overall safety of the community.

What do you think? Do you think that police officers should be required to supervise a church? Or does that take away from the community?
