The People's Militia (now called the Westfall Brigade) is a primarily human volunteer military organization based in Westfall and focused on defeating the Defias Brotherhood. It was founded because the general consensus in the area was that "Stormwind had abandoned Westfall".
The initiative is headquartered in Sentinel Hill, but protectors can also be found wandering various nearby roads. Members of the militia also enlist young adventurers to thin out the local gnoll population and deal with other various threats.
Their leader, , directs them from the lower section of Sentinel Tower in Sentinel Hill.
In the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, it is revealed that the People's Militia renamed themselves the Westfall Brigade and moved to Grizzly Hills in Northrend to fight the Scourge, and it is hinted that the Defias threat to Westfall has gone for good.

The Alliance-Horde War has left many workers and artisans financially broken and homeless. As a result, the Westfall Brigade's task of guarding Sentinel Hill has slightly changed, since several hundred homeless and unemployed Stormwind City citizens are trying to seek refuge there.
The homeless hate the Brigade for not letting them in, and at the gates of Sentinel Hill they call the guards names like "monsters" and often throw Rotten Tomatoes ("hobo" ability); if they successfully hit, it creates a swarm of flies around the guard for a minute or two.
