After security officers at a Pennsylvania nuclear power plant were caught on videotape sleeping on the job, Exelon Corp. said it will end its contract with a company that provides security there. Video footage taken two to six months ago at the Peach Bottom plant showed the Wackenhut Corp. guards napping while sitting on chairs in a "ready room," which is used as a break room, Exelon Generation Chief Operating Officer Chris Crane said in a statement Monday. "This is not acceptable and we will not tolerate it," Crane said, although he said the actions did not affect plant safety. Exelon, the United States' biggest producer of nuclear energy, is switching to an in-house security staff, Crane said.
