Inspector is a rank in many police forces. However, it is not the same (equivalent) rank in each:

  • in the San Francisco police department, Inspector is the lowest rank of detective (below sergeant). The SFPD's original rank of Inspector (which was the same as most other US police department ranks with that name) was changed to Commander, since SFPD senior officers preferred the more military-sounding title.
  • in most other American police departments, such as the NYPD, Inspector is two grades above a Captain (and one grade above a Deputy Inspector).
  • In the Garda Síochána (the Irish police force), Inspector is senior to Sergeant and junior to Superintendent. Inspectors can be either detectives or in uniform.
  • in the Police forces of India, an Inspector is a Police Officer ranking above a Sub-Inspector and below a Deputy Superindentent. Inspectors generally command major police stations, or a group of police stations, known as Police circles (hence the popularly used abbreviation CI or Circle Inspector). Inspectors working in plain clothes units can use the prefix Detective along with their ranks.

The Inspector General - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (626 words)
The Inspector General or "The Government Inspector" (in Russian, Ревизор) is a satirical play by 19th century Russian playwright and novelist Nikolai Gogol, published and produced in 1836.
The top officials of a small provincial town, headed by the Mayor, react with terror to the rumors of an incognito inspector (the revizor) to be sent to their town for an undercover inspection.
That person, however, is not an inspector; it is a young and quite light-headed (yet ambitious) minor bureaucrat (office clerk) from the capital who is travelling to his parents' estate and remains in the hotel simply because he ran out of money.
