Civil Nuclear Constabulary to patrol with TVP

The two forces will be partnering for patrols within the South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse local areas.

Officers from TVP and the Civil Nuclear Constabulary will now be embarking on joint patrols in a bid to increase policing presence. 

It comes as the CNC begins to fufill expansion plans which includes providing extra assistance to the 43 forces. 

Just yesterday, it was announced that the Civil Nuclear Police Authority has joined the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners. 

Currently the CNC’s remit lies with the protection of civil nuclear sites. Expansion plans will further see officers guarding non-nuclear critical infrastructure including train stations and airports in times of “heightened emergency”. 

TVP has said that the partnership approach announced today will add to the resources available for the force. In addition, however, CNC officers are trained as medics and can therefore provide initial emergency care should it be needed. 

Local Police Area Commander for South & Vale, Superintendent Dave Horsburgh said: “This enhanced collaboration will provide additional support to Thames Valley officers in protecting the public and increasing visibility provided by both Forces to the local community. It will also enable officers from CNC to develop their proactive working relationships and utilise their valuable specialist skills within the local area.”

CNC Southern Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Graham Bell said: “I very much welcome this initiative which will provide excellent opportunities for our officers from Harwell whilst also supporting our colleagues from TVP and through this, offer improved levels of cover for the local community. Although our priority remains the security of the Harwell Magnox [civil nuclear] site, I look forward to us supporting these joint patrols as often as possible”.
