Our Role

The role of the Civil Nuclear Constabulary is as follows;

'To provide physical protection, safety and security'

In order to provide only the highest standards of policing at nuclear sites, it is essential that all of our stakeholders are fully confident in the level of service that the CNC provides. Working directly with both nuclear operators and host constabularies, CNC Officers have direct contact with a range of communities.

As Civil Nuclear Security is kept under constant review, delivering counter-terrorist operations is our key policing role and is part of the security regime at nuclear sites.
