    Question Police Officers - Firefighters

    I don't know for sure about the difference between police and fire ethics, but I am sure every fire department has a written code of ethics....somewhere in a "three-ring folder"...on a dusty shelf.

    I do have a question that maybe someone can clarify or answer.

    When and why did the title of [police] Patrolmen (or man), change to the present day POLICE OFFICER? The police department [like fire], has always been formatted as a quasi military [type] sturcture/organization. Military OFFICERS, are COMMISSIONED (sworn) personel, and are NOT to be confused in any way with NON-COMMISSIONED personnel.

    Using this example, then all FIREFIGHTER'S should be titled as FIRE OFFICERS. Obviously, "words mean things"...[once upon a time anyway], and the title of OFFICER has been misused in refering to Police PATROLMEN...as OFFICERS.

    Many words have more than one meaning.

    NCO is non-commission officers, so some enlisted personnel are officers.

    Lawyers and Judges are officers of the court.

    Not everyone who is policeman a man. That is why the change.
