Badges of rank

With over 33,000 officers, the Metropolitan Police Service has lots of different ranks, with many officers specialising in different areas. From a Police Constable walking the beat, all the way up to the Commissioner himself, police officers wear shoulder badges on their uniforms to show what their rank is.
