Provost Guard

The Provost Guard, was formed during the period that Kena applied for its charter, when Kena was founded under dispensation at the Imperial Session in 1951.

The Primary duties are maintaining security at Kena meetings, ceremonials, and such other places as directed by the Illustrious Potentate. Requirements for membership in the Provost Unit of Kena are not restricted to law enforcement officers as in some temples. Most of our members have been in law enforcement, public service, or similar type security work. We feel this type of experience is desirable but does not restrict membership on that basis alone.
