Rank Structure of Indonesian National Police
In the early years, the Indonesian Police used European police style ranks like “inspector” and “commissioner”. When the police were amalgamated with the military structure during the 1960s, the ranks changed to a military style such as “Captain”, “Major” and “Colonel”.
In the year 2000, when the Indonesian Police conducted the transition to a fully independent force out of the armed forces, they used British style police ranks like “Inspector” and “Superintendent”.
In 2001, the Indonesian Police have returned to Dutch style ranks like “Brigadier” and “Inspecteur” just like in the early years with some Indonesianized elements within the ranking system. The ranks are comparable with the armed forces’ rank system.
