How to determine the title of police shoulder straps (photo)?
In the police the ranks practically do not differ from the titles in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, there is no only the title of corporal and Marshal of the police of the Russian Federation.
Well, the differences between naval ranks have already been discussed somewhere
The title of policemen has not changed since the police were renamed militia. Everything is the old way. So the title of a policeman does not differ from the ranks of servicemen. Below I will attach a picture with the titles of the police.
The ranks of representatives of the Russian Armed Forces and the police are almost identical, only in the police are not the rank of marshal and corporal. When a police representative is contacted, the word "police", for example, "police general-major", is added to the title.
Below in the photo are located:
- in the first row the epaulettes of the junior commanding staff (except the rank-and-file officer, this is the junior sergeant, sergeant, senior sergeant, sergeant-major, ensign, senior ensign);
- In the second row, the shoulder straps of the middle and senior teams (4 - average composition: junior lieutenant, lieutenant, senior lieutenant, captain, 3 - senior: major, lieutenant colonel, colonel).
The superior commanding staff includes a major general, a lieutenant-general, a colonel-general, and a police general who is equated with a marshal in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
The ranks of the police are no different from the ranks of the military. Only the word "police", for example, the police major, is added.
The ranks are also subdivided into the rank and file, junior, middle, senior and senior commanders.
Private - it's all clear (the first epaulet on the photo).
Junior commanding staff - from junior sergeant to senior ensign (photo from 2 to 7).
The average commanding staff is a junior lieutenant, a lieutenant, a senior lieutenant, a captain (photo from 8 11).
Senior commanding staff 0 major, lieutenant colonel, colonel (photo 12-14).
And the generals remain - the highest commanding staff - Major General, Lieutenant-General, Colonel-General - the last three photos. there is also a police general, he has four stars on the run, equated to the rank of marshal.
To define it is actually not difficult, if you simply learn the titles in ascending order. If this is just a shoulder strap, then it's a junior sergeant, then goes the sergeant and the senior sergeant, after which the police sergeant-major. Starting with the ensign, the stars appear on the epaulettes, followed by the senior ensign.
Next is ml. Lieutenant, Lieutenant and Stars, then captain (4 stars), then Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel. There are practically no differences from army ranks.
As for the higher ranks, it is even easier to distinguish them. The stars here are much larger in size, Major-General, then Lieutenant-General, Colonel-General and, finally, General. Here we should pay attention to the fact that initially the major-general is coming, and then the lieutenant-general, and not vice versa (as in a series of titles above, without a prefix, the general).
So let's say - the land forces (and the Ministry of Internal Affairs is also a kind of troops, only internal) do not have fundamental differences in ranks and shoulder straps. Everywhere there is a junior officer, officer and senior officers, well, soldiers. Differences are only in the color of epaulettes, which just determine the kind and types of troops.
I think that to understand the positions of police officers will be extremely beneficial to many. After all, take even the standard situation, when an employee of the DPS stops you, and you do not know how to address him correctly - an embarrassing situation. "Comrade policeman"; - sounds somehow not very good. And just in order to understand the titles, you need to familiarize yourself with the features of the epaulettes, which are one of the clear evidence of titles.
The figure shows the epaulettes and the corresponding titles:
In the picture you can see how the police shoulder straps look, depending on the ranks. The rank and file, junior commanders, middle, senior and senior commanders are allotted. The lowest rank, as in the army - the rank and file police. Higher - the police general of the Russian Federation. So visually presenting this picture and looking at the police shoulder straps can easily determine its title. However, in a formal setting, a police officer must present himself with a mention of the rank.
The ability to quickly determine the position of a police representative is very useful.
I suggest visually on the image to get acquainted with all variants of epaulettes, which correspond to this or that post.
Most often of all people in uniform, we are confronted with representatives of law enforcement bodies. When communicating with them, the first thing that a person should do in a form, addressing us, is to name his rank and surname.
However, these formalities are not always respected, so you need to figure out who is standing before you. In this we will help shoulder straps.
With the highest commanders we have to face less often. But just in case, the kind of epaulettes you need to know.
