  • Rank insignia - How do you wear them?

    How do you guys wear your rank insignia?

    On the collar?
    On the sleeve?
    On the eupalet (shoulders)?

    Combination of the above (if so, what)?

    I am a Sergeant and we wear ours on the collar. We are not allowed to sew them on the sleeves.

    Sergeants wear cloth sleeve patches. Lieutenants and above wear collar brass.

      we wear them on the collar, but how is up to wearer.. I go with the marine corps enlisted measuring/style.. If you buy your coat, shirts, sweater.. You can sew them on the sleeves as well.. Or wear them on the epulate. We're pretty lax on that stuff.. Up to the individual.. One Lt doesnt really ever wear her bars..

        if you can wear them however you want, i wouldn't call it a uniform. uniforms require uniformity.

          Currently they all wear them on the collar. One of the Sgts is currently trying to petition for the epaulet bands for some reason.. I've never been a fan of that style myself.

            securitas

            For a while I worked for Securitas, and I must say that the only thing I liked about the uniform was the rank insignia.

            Very simple-

            1) One red bar on shoulder (Security Officer)
            2) Two red bars (entry level supervisor) SGT equiv
            3) Three red bars (watch commander) LT equiv

            beyond that it wasn't really necessary for rank insignia.

                The Minneapolis branch doesn't do that... everyone wears the three red bars.

                  Epaulettes and a name badge which says - JOHN CITIZEN Supervisor / Site Manager / Shift Commander / A*** Hole.

                  Companies I worked for had name ranks on the slides or coloured bars. Friend I work with occassionally has gone for coloured slides - easily identifiable in a crowd.

                    The bars have to do with the different training levels they have.

                    Securitas around here wears regular stripes and bars type rank.

                      In French Ass is the proper way to shorten Assistant. So my boss gave me a badge with Ass Dir written on it - I refused to wear it & had a new one made with the number 2 on it!

                        Not the sort of thing to wear to an all male night club or party at the hotels ?

                        Reminds me of "Cosmo Kramer ....... the ASSMAN" on his car number plates.

                          The bars don't even mean that here.

                              Forget rank, it's the site supervisors that really keep a security company in business. I've seen client representatives that will only interact with the supervisor because the branch doesn't know what's going on.
