            Sorry, Hi Group. Never been banned on any forums, although I will give you credit HotelSecurity I did have a comment removed once by the moderator. I would have introduced myself earlier but I didn't realize everybody on here was such a close knit group. I almost brought pizza in tonight to work, but I stopped at Subway instead. Not that this is matters but I did wear a shirt last night that said I heart pizza. I work rotating shifts Marshall and the days off are nice but the shifts do get kind of long.

              This is the second year we've gone to SPOTC. This year we weren't very

              prepared.

                What is it exactly? Is it competitions against other groups?

                  Yeah. Basically the Department of Energy runs this competition every year

                  and Security Forces, Law Enforcement Agencies, and Military Groups from all

                  over the country get together and compete in different individual and team

                  events. All of the D.O.E. teams are in their own category, while everyone

                  who is not D.O.E. is bunched together in another category.

                    How many police departments use the M249 machine gun, and therefore are qualified to bring two gunners with their team?

                    Just the fact that the competition makes having a M249 crew mandatory for competition re-enforces the idea that nuclear security is less about "playing cop," and more about being a military force designed to defeat hostile action towards a exclusion area.

                      N.A.,

                      While I've never heard of any police departments using the M249 for

                      anything, I believe the only qualification for the competition is

                      the "familiarization" course mentioned. While I can't speak for the Department

                      of Energy, I nevertheless think it would make sense to have the majority of a

                      security force on a high security or restricted site in a "cop" role dealing with

                      more mundane, everyday issues, and a select minority of the security force

                      in a more aggressive "para-military" role called to action in the event of a

                      hostile security breach.

                        Further to the discussion on Nuclear Security.

                        Here is the Link to the Civil Nuclear Constabulary and the lastest annual report which might be of interest to those involved in similar roles in other countries.

                        The Civil Nuclear Constabulary is actively recruiting and it is interesting to note that whilst many officers stay in a generalist Police Officer role, others decide on a completely different development route. Career opportunities can include working in areas such as specialist firearms, intelligence, dog handling and marine escorts.

                              When I first started out in law enforcement I considered applying at the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Laboratory Security-Police Department, I decided not to apply because they were recieving alot of bad press concerning security practices. I'm not sure if the stories were true, or just the work of sour employees. Sometimes I regret that decision.

                              The other day I was surfing the web, and came across a story about the LLNL police having access to gatling guns. These guns looked very fun to shoot. I would bet money the officers are experts with the guns. Thier SWAT team finished in the top five or six at the 2007 SWAT World Championships. In fact there were three teams in the top ten that were involved in security for nuclear laboratories (one of the teams was from Canada). The teams showed that traditional law enforcement doesn't have a monopoly on competent SWAT operators.

                              Stay Safe.
