Have you ever noticed the distinct epaulets on officers’ shoulders?

Each epaulet alludes to a ranking within the service with the crown and three leaves representing the Chief, the crown and two leaves identifying the Deputy Chief, and two leaves representing the role of Inspector. The crown with three chevrons represents a Staff Sergeant rank, while the three chevrons represent a Sergeant and a blank epaulet identifies a Constable. Cadets, Special Constables and Auxiliary members also receive identifying epaulets with special epaulets designed to support important awareness campaigns like Pride and Truth and Reconciliation Day.
