Church tried to infiltrate Pinellas police agencies - 1980-01-09
"The main point is that at that time -- April 1976 -- the communications center is going "all civilian." In other words they are going to relieve the uniformed policemen of those clerical duties so that they can get onto production posts, and staff the communications center with all civilians. At present, it's about half and half. The civilians by my observation are all lovely young ladies -- 100 percent foxes.
"I THINK this is an excellent opportunity for us and I would like to see us represented in that communications center." Information was the lifeblood of the Guardians' covert operations against those whom they perceived to be enemies of Scientology, information they could use to defame and discredit the enemies. The St. Petersburg Police Department became an enemy about mid-February of 1976.
