About us

The Civil Nuclear Police Authority oversees the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) and must ensure that their policing meets the need of the nuclear operating companies.

This could mean denying unauthorised access to nuclear material or recovering control of nuclear material lost to unauthorised persons.

Who we are

We are independent of the CNC, and our team is made up of 4 representatives from the nuclear industry, 3 independent members and the chairman.

Our responsibilities

We’re responsible for:

  • employing the CNC’s police officers and staff
  • setting the strategic direction for the CNC
  • making sure the CNC has the resources to carry out its work in line with that strategic direction
  • holding the CNC to account for the way in which it carries out its work
