There is yet more evidence about how the Civil Nuclear Police
Authority [ C.N.P.A. ] views itself as running an ‘Armed force’,
rather than a more traditional constabulary.
This evidence comes from a news piece about Brigadier Mike Griffiths,
[ soon to be Chief Executive of the C.N.P.A. ] ,
in the Carlisle based News & Star.
Within the article their is a reference to the Civil Nuclear Constabulary as being a ‘specialised armed force’ which is currently responsible to DECC ( the Department of Energy and Climate Change ).
Though it has just too many links to the MOD ( War Office ) for my liking.
Griffiths is currently the British Army’s director of personnel,
and holds the title of Colonel of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.
