Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department - Rank and Insignia

Rank and Insignia

Rank insignia for Lieutenant through Sheriff is worn on the collars of the shirt and the shoulders of the jacket. Rank insignia for Sheriff's Deputies/Detectives and Sergeants is worn on the upper sleeves in the form of chevron stripes. Sworn staff from Deputy upwards wear silver-tan shirts with forest green pants, the traditional Sheriff's uniform in California.

Sheriff's Security Officers, Security Assistants, and Community Service Officers have the same green pants, but with white uniform shirts. Custody Assistants, who work in the County Jails as well as station lockups, have all green uniforms. Law Enforcement Technicians, Parking Control Officers, and other unarmed civilian uniformed staff wear blue uniforms.

Class A uniforms, which are wool-blend and worn with metal badges and name tags, are the standard every day uniforms. Class B uniforms, which are wash-and-wear polyester-cotton with cloth badge patches, are worn in custody environments, certain specialized units, and can also be authorized for wear in inclement weather or extreme heat. There are also specialist uniforms such as bicycle patrol gear, nomex flight suits, tactical uniforms, and others for special circumstances. Authorized headgear includes the combination cap and campaign hat in green for the Class A uniform, worn with the county hat piece, as well as baseball caps with the Class B uniform.

Badges for sworn personnel are metal, gold colored, six-point stars. The center of the badge is circumscribed by a blue cloisonne band containing the words "Deputy Sheriff" and "Los Angeles County" in gold lettering. The inner circle, within the blue band contains a silver likeness of the California State Bear. The serial number of the badge appears at the bottom of the badge below "Los Angeles County." Ranks above Deputy have the title in the top part of the inner-circle of the badge, just above the Bear.

Badges for Sheriff's Security Officers and other civilian uniformed personnel are gold colored shields with a likeness of the California State Bear at the top, and an enameled county seal in the middle. The top-most ribbon contains "County of Los Angeles" and the following one "Sheriff's Department." The bottom ribbons have the job title of the holder and a serial number.

Famous quotes containing the words rank and and/or rank:

    The rank and file have let their servants become their masters and dictators.... Provision should be made in all union constitutions for the recall of leaders. Big salaries should not be paid. Career hunters should be driven out, as well as leaders who use labor for political ends. These types are menaces to the advancement of labor.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    Lady Hodmarsh and the duchess immediately assumed the clinging affability that persons of rank assume with their inferiors in order to show them that they are not in the least conscious of any difference in station between them.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)
