The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is a unique armed police force, trained to College of Policing standards. Our core focus is the security of the nation’s licenced civil nuclear sites and civil nuclear material in transit in England and Scotland. Failure to deliver this is simply not an option.

As sworn police officers we are proud to be part of the wider policing family and have a duty to protect the public, both through our core role; helping to patrol the communities who live near our sites; and as a key part of the UK’s strategic armed policing reserve.

People are at the heart of the CNC. With a culture where we strive to bring out the best in each other and the wider team, we can fulfil our mission of protecting the civil nuclear sector and the UK public.

We are Team CNC and We are #ProudtoProtect
