Civilian Instructors as Cadet Forces Range Conducting Officers

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am making this request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I am aware of the current practice that Air Cadet Organisation civilian instructors can act as Range Conducting Officers on Service ranges. As part of their RCO duties these non-uniformed civilian helpers are left in charge of Service weapons and ammunition, despite the Service having little jurisdiction over their conduct.

Please provide me with the following information:
1) Copies of all documents relating to the conduct of ranges by civilian instructors of the Air Cadet Organisation.
2) Details of any official security vetting these civilian instructors need to undertake.
3) Disciplinary procedures pertaining to civilian instructors within the Air Cadet Organisation.

Your help with this matter is appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Jones
