  • Rank?

    Most departments us the same ranks (SGT, LT, CPT, etc), some use other forms of private and sergeant. But have you ever heard of a PD using warrant officer rank. The closest I have ever came to seeing this the CBP. They have a warrant officer type rank that is senior officer (I think). Or any other odd ranks that you have seen. My PD does not use LT you go from SGT to CPT.

    Are you sure that it isn't an officer assigned to do warrants?

      I don't see any warrant officer insignia!

        The blue suiters use WO type insignia to show who is a journeyman and who isn't. There is also a special type of CBPO who's rank is slightly different. You'll have to ask one of them, though, that's all I know.

        Sarge, those are our (USBP) ranks. The CBPOs are different. For example: First liners wear major's leaves. Ours wear captains bars. Their Journeymen wear warrant bars, ours wear nada.

          We use Officer (and FTO, which is basically Sgt over a trainee), Sgt, Lt, Assistant Chief, and Chief.

          We also have a few Warrant Officers, but they are employed by the municipal courts and are not under the police department umbrella. They serve summons and make warrant arrests for Class C municipal courts warrants. They are fully commissioned peace officers, but work for the city courts. They do not respond to calls for service and while they are not serving warrants/summons, they work as bailiffs at city court.

            Eh no and I don't really see the logic why a PD would, except to be different maybe. Warrant Officers play an unqiue role in the military that doesn't really need to be replicated. It would be sort of like a PD having a Spec-4 instead of a corporal... no real point.

                    Same as Dingo...they serve a purpose in the military, but I fail to see the need for one in LE. I have never seen a dept. that has them.

                          Rank?

                          I seem to recall the Minnesota State Patrol Trooper pilots given the warrant officer rank. I don't recall if that is still the case, however.

                          The Anoka Police Department (MN) consists of 27 sworn officers, according to their website, but some time back they had numerous sergeant ranks. They probably only have a few sergeant positions, but I think they had a career development program in place where they had Staff Sergeant, Master Sergeant, First Sergeant, Sergeant Major, or something along those lines. Usually I only hear of different types of sergeant ranks in state police/highway patrol organizations. Again, back to the Minnesota State Patrol, back in the day I think a station sergeant was three stripes, but no rockers. I think a district sergeant may have been three stripes with one (or more) rockers. Of course, that may have all changed when they created the lieutenant rank. Hopefully a Minnesota Trooper can help me out with that one.
