Previous topic on sergeants here:


So, your favourite three lieutenants, please?

The British rank of inspector is probably roughly akin to lieutenant, both manage a team of constables/officers and sergeants and are a rung on the management ladder. So include an equivalent rank if you wish. I don't know what the equivalent ranks are in other countries, but I'm sure people will know!

Mine are:

Lt. Columbo (has to be included, eh?)
Inspector Monroe
Lt. Bert Samuels

I had to include Columbo. What a mind, eh?

Monroe, in UK police drama THE BILL, was a stern, authoritarian character who was 100% convincing.

Lt. Samuels, in CAGNEY AND LACEY, was a favourite of mine. He had that stern, authoritarian approach, but was also very human - and showed a sensitive side.

I don't want cliches that shout all the time and smoke a cigar constantly. I like some that show a softer side.
