The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is an armed non-Home Office police force that protects civil nuclear installations and substances in the United Kingdom. It came into being on the 1st April 2005, replacing the former United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority Constabulary that was established in 1955. It does not guard nuclear weapons, which is instead the jurisdiction of the British Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence Police.

Role

The role of the CNC is to police and protect civilian nuclear sites and materials in the UK, as well as escorting materials when transported overseas to the US, Europe and Japan. As of 2005, the CNC has 650 personnel. The CNC operates at a total of 16 sites around the UK, including its Headquarters at Culham in Oxfordshire. The remaining locations are divided into Operational Units, in which a full operational police presence is maintained, and Support Units, which maintain an overt armed presence.


Led by Chief Constable Bill Pryke and authorised in the Energy Act 20041 with its own Police Authority, it falls under the remit of the Department of Trade and Industry instead of the Home Office. CNC officers are trained to the same standards as other UK police forces though they have more limited jurisdiction. Unlike most of their UK counterparts, both Home Office (territorial) police forces and non-Home Office police forces (such as the British Transport Police), CNC officers are routinely armed. Chief Constable is the title given to the commanding officer of every territorial police force in the United Kingdom except the two responsible for Greater London. ...

Notes

Note 1: The constabulary is established in Chapter 3 ('sections 51 - 71') of the Energy Act 2004. The act sets up the police authority and the position of Chief constable, defines the powers of members of the constabulary, mandates that Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary must inspect the force and amends several other acts. Her Majestys Inspectorate of Constabulary is the name used for bodies responsible for the inspection of police forces in the United Kingdom. ...
