The PSPG, for "Peloton Spécialisé de Protection de la Gendarmerie" (Specialized Gendarmerie Protection Platoon) is a specialized platoon in charge of the protection of the French nuclear installations, depending on the services of the French Gendarmerie Nationale.

They are trained for intrusion interventions
and in particular against terrorism.

Created in 2009, the PSPGs are located in the nuclear power plants
production centers.

  There are 21 platoons, each composed of more than 40 men who have been trained by the GIGN.

In a report on the Franco-German channel "Arte" on 05/12/2017, the director of the French Nuclear Park, P. SASSEIGNE, explained that:" More than 1,000 specialized gendarmes, trained by the GIGN, are on the nuclear sites. We have a contract with the Gendarmerie Nationale for a budget of 100 million Euros annually."

  These platoons existed before and were named PSIG Nucléaire. Since 2009, they are able to respond to terrorist risks and are heavily armed with machine guns and ballistic protection...

They may assist local Gendarmerie units without compromising their main mission of defending the nuclear site.

They control all the people who may be on the nuclear site under their care....

They also have non-lethal weapons to counter environmental activists who might try to enter the heart of the complex...

They train regularly in all the buildings of the nuclear site,

in order to know every corner and sensitive places of the site.

Training sessions take place, like here in Vaucluse, with the PSPG of the Cruas Nuclear Power Plant and firefighters equipped with ballistic protection in a simulated counter-terrorist attack.

They keep watch 24 hours a day, making dynamic patrols on the site and its surroundings or in improvised fixed posts.

In the same way, they can be supported very quickly by other specialized platoons of the Gendarmerie in case of major attack situations:

  They also have CBRNE (Chemical, Bacteriological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive) uniforms in case of a serious situation, such as this one worn by the GIGN during an exercise a few years ago.

In the USA, as well as in Belgium, these security services for sensitive nuclear areas, but also for sites such as transport networks, ports, airports or government sites are offered to private security companies, such as "G4S", which manages five on the American continent. This British group also provides security in Belgium for the Tihange nuclear site and in the United Kingdom for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant, as well as for certain British prisons.

In January 2021, Allied Universal, a U.S. company specializing in security (guarding) and facility management (concierge and technological surveillance) has moreover recovered these highly specialized guards, following the merger of part of G4S.


 
The French PSPG also performs exercises with the DGIGN (Detachment of the GIGN) in the different regions where they are located, like here, the one of REIMS, during a simulated attack of a college in 2016.

This defense plan is part of this increase in military intervention forces:

Training of US ARMY SRT soldiers
Every country has legislation allowing their military to protect sensitive sites. On September 20, 2019, the Americans strengthened the protection of one of their most sensitive and best guarded sites:
"Base 51" in NEVADA.
Indeed, 1 million people had signed up on social media to follow an event proposing to "force" their way into Area 51 in huge numbers on September 20, 2019. The US AIR Force took this risk very seriously.

This one did not happen...
