Does anyone know any website that list all or a few of the different police ranks (as in Sargent and Lt.)? Maybe a site that list them in order as well?

It really depends on the department. Some PDs use straight up military ranks, with a couple of alterations, usually in this order:
Patrolman/Detective (equal ranks, different jobs)
Corporal
Sergeant
Desk Sergeant
Lt.
Cpt.
Major
Colonel

Chief
Commissioner

Some use a different structure, with different levels in the lower ranks, especially, with Patrolman 1, 2 and 3, or maybe 1st class, second Class and 3rd Class, same for detectives.

Lt and Captain are used for small group and large group leadership, like stationhouses and wards.

above that, they use Deputy Chief and Chief for main leaders, Inpectors for Detective heads (sometimes the Chief Inspector is the head of the detective branch, while a "Colonel" is the head of the Patrol division.

So, to sum up, it's PD based. No overall rank structure like there is in the military. You might see a Chief of police in one town wearing a star like he's a general and in another an eagle like he's a colonel and in another town no military insignia at all.





We'll be back as soon as order is restored.....

If you own a Gamecube, and you're not playing this game right now, there's something dreadfully wrong with you. Just a heads up.
