We are the Civil Nuclear Constabulary. We’re responsible for the armed protection of the civil nuclear industry – whether it’s on site or in transit. We also work with local police services, nuclear regulators and central government. And we’re now playing a vital role in counter terrorism.
To do all of this, we employ over 1,500 officers and staff, and give them everything they need to succeed. In fact, all of our officers get the knowledge to become some of the most highly-skilled firearms professionals in the country. So we know how to give people the best start to an exceptional career.
When you join us as an Officer, you’ll start with a comprehensive 17-week training programme, which includes our highly regarded firearms training. It will see you combine your observational and communication skills with your resilience to become an effective Police Officer. We’ll also help you keep up with the required fitness levels and standards needed to be an Authorised Firearms Officer throughout your time with us. Once you’ve passed your probationary period, you’ll get the chance to join one of our specialisms. You could be taking on the challenge as a Dog Handler, move into intelligence with our Special Branch, or become a Firearms Instructor yourself. It all depends on your skills and our organisational requirements.
