Mission, Vision and Values
In partnership with the civil nuclear industry, national security agencies and regulatory bodies, the CNC will deter any attacker whose intent is the theft or sabotage of nuclear material, whether static or in transit. If an attack occurs, CNC will defend that material and deny access to it. If material is seized or high consequence facilities are compromised, the CNC will recover control of the facility and regain custody of the material.
Key Mission components:
- Maintain 24/7 armed response at civil nuclear sites
- Enhance and sustain AFO development
- Provide armed escorts for movements of nuclear material
- Support the Strategic Armed Policing Reserve and spontaneous surge requirements
