  • SHO, DPO, CPO, RPO and PPO are posts, not ranks. So you may see a lower rank acting as a higher post for some time.
  • Station House Officer (SHO) could be either a Sub Inspector or Inspector.
  • Deputy Superintendent of Police (D.S.P) and Assistant Superintendent of Police (A.S.P) are of the same level, the difference is that DSP is promoted from the junior rank and is an experienced Police officer while ASP is a young Police officer who joined the service directly as an officer after passing civil service exam.
