About NC State Defense Force, Our Values & Our Mission

NCSDF members have a steadfast mission to help ensure the safety of the communities they stand guard in, assist local and federal law enforcement when needed or requested and assist their communities in times of civil emergencies or disasters. All members pledge to keep a similar oath as military and law enforcement officers have to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
