Categories of membership are based upon whether or not an individual is a sworn law enforcement official and the rank of the individual at the time of application. However, an individual's membership class may change due to promotion or job reclassification. Individuals and businesses who subscribe to our values, goals, mission, and beliefs may apply for NOBLE membership.
