While the NPF does have a paramilitary organization, its ranks differ markedly from the proper military's. It is still a civilian organization and this is best reflected in the ranks and duties performed by its officers.
Command Rank in the NPF is the level at which police officers command and set policy from the rear instead of the field. While Station Chiefs may sometimes take to the field in a large case, it is a rare day for anyone higher to do so. The higher one goes, the more the job becomes about setting and enforcing the NPF's mission.
