The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is an armed police force, keeping the nation safe from harm by securing the integrity of civil nuclear material.

The CNC's primary function is the protection of licenced nuclear sites not used wholly or mainly for defense purposes and the safeguarding of nuclear material in the UK and elsewhere.

The unique nature of its role, combined with its focus on countering threats from terrorists, clearly differentiates the CNC from Home Office/Scottish police forces.
