    The only difference we have is the shield #. Bottom to top, they're all the same.

    In my agency rank badges are the same regardless of the assignment. The only difference is Detectives get a badge that says Investigator instead. We used to have badges for Det Sgt, Lt, Capt etc but I think they did away with them around 30 years ago.

    Royal Canadian Mounted Police Regular Members are ALL issued gold-plated badges with their Regimental Number engraved and blue enamelled on same, but do NOT include any rank designation. Rank is only displayed on our Service (day to day), Review (parade / post-card picture) and Walking Out (wedding, formal dinner) Order uniforms (S: epaulette sleeves on shirts and jackets; R & WO: cloth or metallic thread on sleeves for non-commissioned officers, metal devices or gold cord on boards on epaulletes).

    The plain-clothes types are most notable by their better-than-the-masses attitude and demeanour they disdainfully display to the rest of us (in other words, as bad as, or worse than, every other Service / Department / Force / Agency in the world!)

    Supervisors are supervisors in my agency so their badge doesn't change other than their rank. If a sergeant or lieutenant has any desire to do some actual investigation, they just do it. They don't need a badge saying they are an investigator.

    If we want anything other than a "Deputy" badge, we're welcome to go buy one with Office permission.

    We do not separate our detectives from our other officers. We call them Police Officers, Corporals, Sergeants, and so on. Their rank is what is on their badge.

    Everyone in my agency from the chief commissioner down has the same badge. ID cards show rank. Detectives for some reason get yellow ID cards instead of blue.

    I like that we don't even have a rank of detective. Our "detectives" at still Police Officers who work in that bureau and receive usually an 8% assignment pay. Same thing for Sergeants and Lieutenants. Doing it this way seems to create less of a divide between patrol and the investigators since they are all the same rank.

    In my department the Sgt assigned to a Detective squad has the same Sgt. shield as every other Sgt. in the department. There is also no "detective sgt." It's just a sgt. assigned to a squad. They usually get special assignment pay which is Lt. pay. Each precinct has a detective squad also.

    The badges that the town gave sucked, a maltese cross with an eagle on it. These were for all ranks. So we decided to take it upon ourselves to go with a more NYPD style of badge. Now everyone is very satisfied with them.

    The patrol sergeants are not wearing NYPD style serageants badge, but a NYPD style detective's badge with their shield number in the lower area. They are very nice.

    I wear a NYPD style lieutenant's badge.

    Patrolmen have always been the NYPD patrolman's badge.

    About three years ago we went to these Heavy oversized shields made by Entenmann - Rovin which look like the LAPD badge. They suck. we've had to send half of them back because although heavy, they come apart easy.

    Plus, because they are oversized, you can't wear a leather decoration holder with it.....so any ribbons you are authoried to wear have to go on the opposite side of the shirt. No a real big problem uinless you're trying to look squared away. I just went to a funeral and felt like a buff who thought he was Douglas McArthur

    These badges say Sgt. or Detective Sgt. or just detective for patrolman assigned to the DB which in answer to your question. As you know, in NJ it's a title not a rank....but still a nice touch.

    In my dept. they just say Sergeant.
    I don't think it needs to say anything else. Heck, they know you're a detective when you tell them.

    All of the agencies I've worked with have done it the same way, so I can safely assume this is a fairly standard practice at least in my area

    Badges tend to be silver for patrol-level officers and either say "Officer" or "Deputy".

    Supervisors switch to gold stars with their rank listed ("Sergeant", "Lieutenant", etc). This is regardless of where they are assigned.

    The detective part has differed slightly. The Sheriff's Office didn't differentiate detectives. They were still deputies, sergeants, etc. Entry level detectives were just deputies with a pay bump. There were detective supervisors, and their badges said whatever rank they were.

    The PD I worked with was similar in that detectives were't supervisors, so they still had silver badges, but they said "detective" on it. detective supervisors had gold badges that said "detectives" (basically, there were two levels of detective. Officer or sergeant. The title was the same, but the badge color changed). The Lieutenants and Captain over investigations had gold bages that had "Lieutenant" or "Captain" on it.

    Then there's the state.. the first division I worked under had silver badges for officers and gold for Sgt and above, with titles, but the detectives were actually considered "supervisors" even though they did not supervise anyone. Their badges were gold and said "investigator". They could laterally move to a Sergeant position if they ever wanted to change positions.

    The division I am currently in is not a patrol division, so its a little different. Entry level positions are "Investigator I" and have all silver badges that say "Special Agent" on them. There are only a handful of those statewide, and its really only used to bring in people that the division really wants but that do not quite meet the requirements for the next level, "Investigator II" which is what 90% of our division (minus supervisors) are. Our badges are silver with gold scrollwork and say "Special Agent" also (no word difference from the lower level investigators, and we do not supervise them, however we are at a sergeant's paygrade.) There are no actual sgts, and the first level supervisors are Lieutenants. Their badges have their title, and are gold with silver scrollwork. Captains and above have all gold badges.

    Probably a lot more information than you needed, but maybe it will help a little.

    It really depends on the design and size of your shield/badge. Check the catalog pictures on this site and you will find a couple of badges with a banner that says "Detective Sergeant"

    http://www.sunbadgeco.com/

    This company will design any type or style of badge your agency desires. They just need a letter from the COP on departmental letterhead.

    When I worked for the PD and the CHP our badges did identify whether we were Detectives, Investigators or such - just "Sergeant"

    Officer and Corporal is a silver badge that says "Officer".

    Sergeants and above have gold badges that says their rank. Detectives badges still say "Sergeant".
