Probe Starts into London Police Links to Scientology
- Dinners with Tom Cruise alleged to have been handed out

Probe Starts into London Police Links to Scientology POLICE are under investigation for their financial links to the Church of Scientology.

There are allegations that around 20 police officers from the City of London force were the subject of various gifts from the controversial church, which preaches that aliens founded human life on earth.

The gifts are said to have included a dinner with Tom Cruise, one of Scientology’s most famous sons.

"We are conducting a review to ensure that all members of staff are aware of the force policy on accepting hospitality and to assess whether clarification or amendment is necessary," said a City of London police spokesperson.

Last month a spanking new UKP24 million Scientology centre was unveiled at Queen Victoria Street in the City. Present at the grand opening was Chief Superintendent Kevin Hurley, who described Scientology as a "force for good."
