Police rank


Police ranks are a system of hierarchical relationships in police organizations.[1] The rank system defines authority and responsibility in a police organization. Police ranks, dependent on country, are similar to military ranks[2] in function and design due to policing in many countries developing from military organizations and operations,[3] such as in western Europe,[4][5] former Soviet countries,[6] and English-speaking countries.[7] Usually, uniforms denote the bearer's rank by particular insignia affixed to the uniforms.[8]

Rank is not only used to designate leadership, but to establish pay-grade as well.[9] As rank increases, pay-grade follows, but so does amount of responsibility.[10]

Brazil


Brazil has several different police forces, each with its own ranks. At a federal level, there are the Federal Police (Portuguese: Polícia Federal, the equivalent to the FBI), the Federal Highway Police (Polícia Rodoviária Federal) and the Federal Railroad Police (Portuguese: Polícia Ferroviária Federal). At a state level, there are the Military Police (Polícia Militar, a gendarmerie type force unlike the military police of many other countries, the Brazilian equivalent of which is the Army Police) and the Civil Police (Polícia Civil). At a city level, there is the Municipal Guards (Guarda Municipal).
