Listen to Mormon Stories Podcast where John Dehlin interviewed Brent Metcalfe. It's fascinating.

When I worked as a security guard on Temple square early 70's the office was in basement of the tabernacle. Most of us had worked in regular law enforcement. Guard booths at each gate. Rover guards walked the grounds between points and buildings. We wore church attire and no weapons. Kind of a weird experience. Only stayed a couple of years.

I received a tour of the security department in 2006. The personnel even took me to lunch afterwards. Their operation was in one of the upper floors of the HQ building. They were proud to show me their 24/7 watch office.

My understanding is that there are several tiers of church security. The lowest level being temple security that are basically night watchman and custodians, church security that is the basic security functions around Temple Square and then the top tier is the personal security detail for the First Presidency. My understanding is that they are actually BYU detectives so they do have some Law Enforcement authority and can carry weapons and do some investigative work. I could be wrong though.

I used to work in law enforcement and I do know that Church Security does have their own bomb sniffing dog ( probably not a bad idea) and often times they send a representative to multijurisdiction law enforcement intelligence meetings, much to the chagrin of cops.

Who wants to know? And why?

I've heard that every church guard carries a copy of the BoM for self-protection.
