A nuclear security officer armed with the requisite AR-15 assault rifle and 9-mm handgun patrols the coastal area of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. Since 9/11, Pacific Gas and Electronic, operator of the Diablo Canyon power plant, has increased security at the coastal power plant. Armed forces stand guard at the three vehicle inspection points as well as all points of entry into the buildings while a roving security force covers the surrounding grounds outside of the plant.
