Eight police officers two civilian staff serving with Strathclyde Police, Scotland’s largest force, listed their official religion as Jedi in voluntary diversity forms.

Jane’s Police Review editor Chris Herbert, who requested the information, made fun of the situation:

The Force appears to be strong in Strathclyde Police with their Jedi police officers and staff. Far from living a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, some members of the noble Jedi order have now chosen Glasgow and its surrounding streets as their home.

About 390,000 people listed their religion as Jedi in the 2001 Census for England and Wales. In Scotland the figure was a reported 14,000. With these numbers surrounding him, the funny editor shouldn’t grow too proud of this technological terror he has constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Do, or do not. There is no try.
