The Department's Basic Protective Force Training Program

The emphasis on homeland security and protection of national assets, especially since September 11, 2001, has prompted the Department of Energy to take a number of actions to enhance its security posture. A critical component of this effort is the cadre of over 4,000 armed personnel responsible for securing the Department's nuclear materials, weapons, and national security-related information.
