SFPD detective ranks.

Hoping I can get some help with San Francisco police ranks.The main character is a male 20 year veteran now in Robbery Homicide. I have been using the title of Detective throughout. For him, I was unsure of different levels of detective. I found info on LA but not SFPD, and they seem to have 3 classes. He’s the guy out in the field doing the murder investigation, liaising with other agencies etc.The one I am most confused with is his boss. Older, based in an office but not just a pen-pusher,…See More

Logan City, (South of Brisbane) Australia.
About Me:
Hi everyone. I've been away from this site for some years due to family reasons, but have returned to my writing with a vengeance.
I am in my mid 50s from Brisbane, and lived in Ireland for many years. I am in the process of writing a crime novel which I hope to complete next year. I have previously written a thriller set in Africa and some short stories set in Australia.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer

Books And Authors I Like:
I like most crime fiction. For a while I concentrated on the older novels by authors like Raymond Chandler, Rex Stout, and Erle Stanley Gardner. (Unusually for someone who likes these types of writers, I do not like Dashiell Hammett).
Modern novelists I like are Robert Crais, Michael Connelly and James Patterson. Not limiting myself to male authors, I have just finished Bare Bones by Kathy Reichs and enjoyed it very much.
Non fiction is usually aviation related, or modern historical.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I don't have a lot of time to watch TV, but it would normally be crime dramas such as "Law and Order", any courtroom drama, or CSI.
Of non-fiction, I like documentaries showing forensics and police procedures.

Hi Denis: I'm a huge fan of Kathy Reichs. Love Bare Bones. Her new novel is out and I hope to get it and find time to read it soon. Have you tried James Lee Burke? He's my writing muse. I write mystery and suspense novels.

Best,
Douglas Quinn
