Detectives Build Training Program for Police about Sovereign Citizen Movement

By Leischen Stelter

The sovereign citizen movement is a growing problem in the United States with an estimated 300,000 people engaging in anti-government activities. This group of people generally believes they exist outside the jurisdiction of government authorities and are not subject to government regulation. The Southern Poverty Law Center found that there has been a huge increase in sovereign organizations in the U.S., growing from 149 in 2008 to 1,274 in 2011.
