Legal – Non-Judicial Punishment (NJP)
Understand never to take it personally when JLBC Cadets find themself requiring disciplinary action. As well, understand as commanders, you must uphold the standards expected of our Commandant and the Corps.
Jurisdiction. JLBC grants Commanding Officers and Officers-In-Charge (OICs) of units the authority to impose NJP upon members of their commands. The power to impose NJP is inherent in the office, not the individual. Thus the power may be exercised by a person acting as the Commanding Officer when the Commanding Officer is on leave, and the Executive Officer succeeds to command. Article 15 gives a Commanding Officer or OIC power to punish individuals for minor offenses. The term “minor offense” means conduct normally not more severe than that usually handled at a summary court-martial (where the maximum punishment is 30-days confinement). The final decision as to whether an offense should be punished by NJP or court-martial rests with you, the Commanding Officer.
