The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is deploying a workforce management system to aid its protection of nuclear sites and materials.
With around 800 police officers and staff, the CNC works in partnership with nuclear operators and Home Office forces. Operational units are located at 15 sites throughout England, Scotland and Wales and CNC headquarters, which is based at Culham in Oxfordshire.
The Open Options Duty Planning System from Crown will replace an ageing legacy workforce planning system, and will provide a single, force-wide system that can be accessed from all 15 of CNC's operating sites.
The new system, known as “Project Domino” within CNC, will provide improvements in the scheduling of duty officers; better management of overtime and leave; high visibility of labour costs across the force; and improved absence management processes.
Sgt Mark Taylor, Domino project manager at CNC, said, "The Open Options solution will represent a major step forward in our ability to manage and deploy our officers in the most effective and efficient manner. A comprehensive networked solution is vital to our organisation.”
Deployment is expected to be completed early this autumn.
