The Government has published its response to the consultation on Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) service expansion
The consultation asked interested parties for their views on expanding Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) services beyond the civil nuclear sector, enabling the CNC to become more agile in helping other police forces to protect the public.
A Chairman of the Civil Nuclear Police Authority (CNPA) Vic Emery said: “We welcome the government’s positive response to the consultation on CNC service expansion. We are pleased that the vast majority of inputs made to the consultation were supportive of the organisation’s ambitions.
“Whilst the CNC’s core mission will always remain the protection of civil nuclear sites and nuclear material, the proposals outlined in the consultation would also enable us to improve efficiency and greatly enhance the support we can provide to our partners and to other police forces, ensuring that the wider police service is working together to maximise public safety.
“We look forward to working with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to take these proposals forward.”
The government response to the consultation is available on the CNC website.
