Non-Commissioned Officer Law and Legal Definition
A non-commissioned officer refers to an enlisted member of an armed force who has been delegated leadership or command authority by a commissioned officer. For example, all ranks of sergeants in the U.S. army, air force, and marine crops are termed as non-commissioned officers.
A non-commissioned officer has a continuing responsibility, both on and off duty, for maintaining good order and discipline and for immediate correction of conduct that might embarrass or discredit the force. There can be no doubt that this responsibility would require a non-commissioned officer to take appropriate action when s/he found a man of his/her organization in breach of restriction, especially in a place frequented by other military personnel. [United States v. Foster, 34 C.M.R. 839, 842 (C.M.R. 1964)].
