Corrected entry: The New York City Police Commissioner wears a four star rank insignia on his collars, badge and lapel pin. The actual insignia worn by the police commissioner is five stars.

Correction: The Commissioner is not a sworn police officer and wears no insignia. The four stars worn by both Frank and Henry Reagan reference their final positions as sworn police officers prior to being appointed Commissioner. As such, they are entitled to wear their final rank of insignia, which in both cases, was Chief of the Department, which is four stars. If one or the other had been appointed Commissioner at the time they were a two star Assistant Chief, then two stars is what they would wear on their dress blues.
