comment When a dagger is used to indicate a note, must it come after an asterisk?
@Kris, although I had heard of the Chicago guide before, I didn't know that it was considered authoritative (and I certainly didn't have a subscription to it). The resources I did check didn't address this issue at all, although I could have looked harder.

comment What is the term for police officers in command positions?
That argument is a non sequitur. You are of course completely right that police departments and armed forces didn't evolve in the same way, but that's immaterial. A term with analagous meaning and different etymology could have evolved over time, or someone could have even created one out of the blue after seeing the need for one.

comment What is the term for police officers in command positions?
I'm not looking for the name of a particular rank, though. I'm looking for a single word or term that refers collectively to all the ranks listed in that Wikipedia entry except for detectives/corporals/deputies/patrolmen.

comment What is the term for police officers in command positions?
This is true, but "brass" in this context is a slang term. I was hoping for something a bit more formal.

I feel like I've asked this question before, but I don't see it on my profile. I apologize if I'm re-asking a deleted question; I'm hoping I just asked it somewhere else.
