OathKeepers Code of Ethics
As an Oathkeeper, my fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality, and justice.
I will keep my private life unsullied and will behave in a manner that does not bring discredit to me, my brothers and sisters, and this organization. I will maintain calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. I will be honest in thought and deed both and will be diligent in obeying the laws of my City, State, Country, and the Constitution of the United States. I will conduct myself in a non-biased, respectful and professional manner, maintaining confidentiality as required in the performance of my duties.
I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, political beliefs, aspirations, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions or actions. I will honor the service of my brothers and sisters in service with Military, Law Enforcement, and First Responder organizations, and will endeavor to support them in their just duties and actions. I will not compromise my principles or that of the Oathkeepers, and will not honor or execute orders that are unconstitutional in nature.
I recognize my Constitutional oath as a contract with the Republic for which we serve, and my membership as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the Oathkeepers. I will never engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will I condone such acts by other members. I will cooperate with all legally authorized agencies and their representatives in the pursuit of justice.
I know that I alone am responsible for my own standard of professional performance and will take every reasonable opportunity to enhance and improve my level of knowledge and competence.
I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my Constitutional service for my community, and my brothers and sisters in service.
Community Protection Team (CPT)
Oath Keepers’ Community Preparedness Team (CPT) is working to make America strong again, from the bottom up by having well trained, experienced military, police, and first responder veterans come together and lead the way in preparing their communities for any disaster, either natural or man-made.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
CERT is a national certification program to train and qualify persons to provide government agencies support during emergencies. OathKeepers strives to qualify it’s members as CERT certified, in order to better assist local responders during emergencies.
Communications are critical during an emergency. Whether it be an earthquake, flood, hurricane, or economic disaster, communication systems are some of the first system to fail.
Every American needs to have the ability to communicate with emergency services, to ensure help is on the way. We recommend that people have at least a hand-held HAM radio on hand, and the knowledge to use it for local communications.
Emergency Medical Team
We feel strongly that every American should be trained to a level where they can provide immediate medical care for victims of trauma until such time as they can receive more advanced treatment.
Whether it be a car accident, a gunshot wound, a chainsaw accident, or a heart attack, our goal is to be a positive factor in saving lives.
OathKeepers Legal team are responsible for ensuring the OathKeepers organization and members work within the legal system.
The team works to protect the organization from attacks and slander, maintain legal compliance and recommend legal and political actions.
Chaplains lead nondenominational religious services and provide spiritual leadership and support to the OathKeepers Utah branch and its missions. Our chaplain is available to provide spiritual guidance to individuals who don’t have access to formal religious services offered by their faith of choice, or to those who are open to sharing their personal struggles.
