The National Organization for Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) is an organization founded in 1976.
Chapters are the core of NOBLE and are a vital link in carrying out the mission of the organization. NOBLE consists of 56 chapters in six regions throughout the United States and one chapter in the Caribbean.
Chapters provide an organizational structure for members to enrich and improve programs within their own communities and respond to issues and concerns. As NOBLE members, we realize our responsibility to give back to the community by participating in community outreach activities and programs. NOBLE chapters also provide members networking opportunities, professional development, and local and regional meetings and training.
All chapters must receive an official charter from the National Office and directly report to their assigned Regional Vice President. This charter is an official document which means a chapter has met all certification requirements.
Chapters elect their own officers, operate semi-autonomously, and are required to follow the National Constitution & Bylaws and the National Fiscal Standards
