Dear Mr Howarth 
 
I am writing in response to your request for information regarding the below received on 11 
June 2015. Your request has been handled under Section 1(1) of the Freedom of Information 
Act 2000. In accordance with Section 1(1)(a) of the Act  I hereby confirm that the CNC/CNPA 
does hold information of the type specified.  
 
I wish to make a Freedom of Information request to your police force. The request 
regards whether, or not, your force employs the use of ethnic monitoring in relation to 
Gypsies and Irish Travellers. With regards to this, I would like to ask three questions:  
Are Gypsies and Irish Travellers monitored as standard policy in your police force?  
If not, please explain why your police force does or does not monitor Gypsies and Irish 
Travellers?
   
The CNC monitor for ethnicity at point of recruitment. 
 
How many police officers are self-declared either as Romany Gypsy or Irish Traveller in 
your force? 
We do not employ any self-declared Romany Gypsy or Irish Traveller staff. 
 
The Civil Nuclear Constabulary is a specialist armed police service dedicated to the civil nuclear 
industry, with Operational Policing Units based at 11 civil nuclear sites in England, Scotland and 
Wales and over 1400 police officers and staff. The Constabulary headquarters is at Culham in 
Oxfordshire. The civil nuclear industry forms part of the UK’s critical national infrastructure and 
the role of the Constabulary contribute to the overall framework of national security. 
 
The purpose of the Constabulary is to protect licensed civil nuclear sites and to safeguard 
nuclear material in transit. The Constabulary works in partnership with the appropriate Home 
Office Police Force or Police Scotland at each site. Policing services required at each site are 
agreed with nuclear operators in accordance with the Nuclear Industries Security Regulations 
2003 and ratified by the UK regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR).  Armed policing 
services are required at most civil nuclear sites in the United Kingdom. The majority of officers 
in the Constabulary are Authorised Firearms Officers. 
 

 
 
The Constabulary is recognised by the Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales 
and Northern Ireland (ACPO) and the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS). 
Through the National Coordinated Policing Protocol, the Constabulary has established 
memorandums of understanding with the local police forces at all 11 Operational Policing Units. 
Mutual support and assistance enable the Constabulary to maintain focus on its core role. 
 
We take our responsibilities under the Freedom of Information Act seriously but, if you feel your 
request has not been properly handled or you are otherwise dissatisfied with the outcome of
