The Civil Nuclear Constabulary is funded by industry through arrangements for it to charge nuclear sites for provision of service to those sites, as set out in the Energy Act 2004. The published Civil Nuclear Police Authority business plan sets out the forecast expenditure up to 2017/18:

Financial year (£000)

2014-15 (actual)

2015/16 (budget)

2016/17 (budget)

2017/18 (budget)

Staff Costs





Non-Staff Costs





Capital Spending





Some costs that are not for provision of service to nuclear sites, such as the cost of redundancies or employment tribunals, and including other factors cannot be charged to industry and are covered by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. In 2015/16, £268,000 has been budgeted to cover such costs by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
