1) Are your police officers required to declare that they are members of any secret societies, including the Freemasons?
2) Do you keep a register of the police officers who have declared that they are Freemasons?
3) If so, according to the register, how many serving officers have declared that they are Freemasons?
4) Is declaring membership of the Freemasons enforced in your police force, or voluntary?
