  • LAPD 1950s and Present Day

    Hey all!


    I was just wondering if I could tap some of the expertise on the board.


    (1) I'd like to know how the LAPD ranked officers in the 1950s (Sergeant, Lieutenant etc.) from the bottom to the top. If you know the ranking for present day (if it's different), that would be very helpful too.

    Also - I'd love to know the ranking system for the NYPD in the 1970s (or present day, if possible).


    (2) Could anybody direct me to any websites that deal with policing in the US in the 1950s and/or 1970s. LAPD & NYPD preferred, but any bit of info. would be most welcome indeed.



    If anybody can help, my thanks in advance.

    The ranking system has changed somewhat since the 1950s. However, I'm not fully aware of the differences since I didn't work for the LAPD at that time. I recommend watching old Dragnet re-runs as that show was quite accurate regarding department procedures, policies, etc.

    The present ranking system is probably available on the LAPD web site -- www.LAPDonline.org.

    The present ranking system is as follows:

    Police Officer I
    Police Officer II
    Police Officer III
    Police Officer III+I
    Detective I
    Sergeant
    Detective II
    Sergeant II
    Detective III
    Lieutenant I
    Lieutenant II
    Captain I
    Captain II
    Captain III
    Commander
    Deputy Chief
    Assistant Chief
    Chief of Police

      Underdog,

      Are the I, II and IIIs different pay grades, or does a Detective II really outrank a Sergeant I?
