Canadian Police Ranks - Calgary

Unread postby nelsy58 » Wed Apr 12, 2006 5:34 pm

I don't have the visuals for Calgary PS however the rank strucutre is:

Chief Constable (Chief of Police): Same as most city police in Canada. The style of a British Brigadier with Crown of St Edward and stars/pips in a triangle.

Deputy Chief - Crown and two pips as a Colonel in UK

Inspector - I believe it is three pips as a UK Army/Marine Captain

Staff Sgt - Same as the UK Army Staff Sgt

Sgt - same as UK sergenant

Senior Constable - same as UK Lance Corp

Constable - no insigna

You can look at the Winnipeg Police Service to get a close idea to styles and colours for Calgary though the WPS has more ranks than Calgary.

What color are the chevrons for S/Constable through Staff Sergeant and where is the insignia worn (sleeves or collars)?

I believe on tunic the colour of cheverons are gold and on the shirts they are back with red piping around. Worn on both sleeves.

You forgot the rank of Superintendent which is a crown above one pip.

The Superintent Rank is relatively new or at least new in a re-introduction, and was done after my post. Actual date unsure.

The rank of superintendent has been there since 2011 as it is in the current collective agreement between the city of Calgary and the Calgary Police Senior Officer's Association.

2011 is probably the official date. I was in Calgary in 2007/08 and met one of the Deputy Chiefs who said they were bringing the rank into service to assist in the management of the CPS as there was a big gap from Inspector to Deputy Chief. How long it took I don't know and whether it was done before the contract signed in 2011 unsure either. Anyhow it is a CPS rank and the indicator is a St Edward Crown above a Star (pip).

In the early to mid 1980s I lived in Calgary and at the time they used the staff inspector rank which they stopped using.

I know Staff Inspector is in Ontario but only for municipal police and not the Ont Prov Police. Same for Staff Superintent as all rank structures come under an Ont Provincial Act for municipal policing (also explains the different insignia for municipal police compared to OPP with Maple Leafs vice stars and a crown vice stars for Inspectors, etc.). Didn't know Calgary used Staff Inspector or anyone else outside of Ont, but heck why not.
