Estimates of Civil Nuclear Constabulary deployment fluctuate depending on the forecast levels of protection needed for sites and materials in transit. As sites move to decommissioning the numbers of officers will fall, and will conversely increase as any new nuclear facilities come on line.

Current deployment figures provided by the Civil Nuclear Constabulary and estimates for deployed officer numbers in future years are below. These figures are for operational officers and Special Envoy Groups (Civil Nuclear Constabulary Officers charged with protecting nuclear material in transit). Figures do not include officers in training, dog handling, or administration.
