I've already stated the need for more nuclear police. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Now we have this.

www.liverpoolecho.co.uk...

Armed 'Nuclear Police Force' officers drafted in to Merseyside following Manchester bombing


www.forces.net...

Troops will be deployed at Ministry of Defence and civil nuclear sites . . . to free up armed officers in the wake of the Manchester terror attack . . .


Specialists who are trained to guard nuclear establishments and materials are now on the streets.

www.cnc.jobs...

With over 1000 highly trained Police Officers and Police Staff, the CNC is a specialist armed police service dedicated to protecting the civil nuclear industry.


Troops are learning how to guard nuclear establishments. An interesting development for people like myself who are known to occasionally probe the defences at nuclear establishments.

Perhaps I should leave the puffer jacket and rucksack at home.

Having worked at a nuclear power station, all I can say is that these measures are long overdue..and should always be routine.

Made me anxious working there, in many ways, but especially security.
If we must use potentially devastating sources of energy, then in these crazy, chaotic, f#@&ed up times.... these sites should always have military protection and security.

Yes, you could do with a safer hobby.
What about spectating matches at Anfield wearing an Arsenal shirt?

An Everton one would be more exciting

I would have hoped that they already put as much effort into stopping bad guys getting in as they do stopping radiation getting out .

WOW...who'd have thunk the past could dictate the future.

You don't actually believe this do you?

I'm keen wearing an Arsenal one at White Hart Lane! (as much as I despise Arsenal!)

The measures are quite a bit overdue, you are right. Seeing though the security threat level is at the highest, by all means they must be posted! Although even seeing the armed forces about in general gives reassurance in a way.

I once watched 'pool lose from the upper east stand of Stamford Bridge. That was hard work, standing up when the rest of them did

Standing up should be easy..pfffttt.

Just saying..

People don't stand up half as much as they ought.

The reason troops are being used isn't because of a higher threat to nuclear facilities. It is to free up the 1000 authorised firearms officers who can be reallocated for other policing jobs.

It's all a part of Op Temperer and critical warning level were at. The army is being used to protect government and or sensitive locations instead of police.
It frees police up to focus on what's going on at the moment.
I believe the nuclear armed officers are very well trained and are probable better than anyone other than the SAS. At doing the job of protecting nuclear locations.

SAS probe nuclear defences. They're good at that. My neighbour was a security guard at a local nuclear site. She went outside for a cigarette and they sneaked in behind her and took her packet of cigarettes. Shook her up somewhat.

Nuclear constables do the job they've been trained for best. I don't think it's right to send them out on the streets.

I'd rather have them on the streets than the military for patrol purposes. Mainly as being police it's less alarming for the public.
Were just not just mobilising the army by the way, there's also been other government departments deploying there staff. To both increase visibility and conduct further checks.

I'd rather have the cops whose jobs were cut. Every black cap represents a cop who was 'let go'. Now we need them, exactly as they warned us would happen.


www.theguardian.com...


More than 30,000 officers marched through the capital, said the Police Federation, in the only action they are legally entitled to take, in a show of defiance against budget cuts . . .


Some say it was twice that number but they were ordered to misrepresent the numbers.

But this is only while we are at critical, it's nothing to do with a response to poor defences.

Also op probing nuclear defences! Why would you do that!

Because as a young man I walked the length and breadth of this island and I love it and all who dwell here.

They are still trained firearms officers with police training and powers of arrest, which is better than nothing.
