It fits all right, but it can vary from city to city.

In some cities:
Chief of Police (or Police Commissioner)
Colonel
Major
Captain
Lieutenant

Sergeant
Detective
Corporal
Officer

Other cities may include or substitute ranks with Sheriff, Commander, Inspector, Deputy, and more. Other cities have different placement of ranks, placing Detective higher in their chain of command than in others.
Right, but those are just titles. There is not a distinction between police officers who hold commissions and those who don't.
But the set up (which is my point) is the same way, including having different insignia--and in some police departments, different duty uniforms as well--for those with the rank of lieutenant and up. They're all referred to as police officers regardless if they are a corporal or a colonel.
I'm sure there are difference in pay
