    From the little that I know (the good old days when there was no such rank as Senior LTC in the SAF), I believe that an AC is equivalent to a BG, SAC = MG, DC = LG, CP = General.

    Any way, based on a quick review of the SPF directory, there seems to be numerous SUPT and DAC.

    The following is based on my counting the number of senior police officers reflected on the SPF directory in the SG government directory (internet version, as at May 15, 2012):
    SAC, Senior Asst Commissioner: 3
    AC, Asst Commissioner: 13
    DAC, Deputy Asst Commissioner: 23
    SUPT, Superintendent: 105

    105 Superintendents? Wow! Singapore is very safe. Great!

    The uniformed ones seconded to ISD do not have their ranks shown so there are more Supt, DAC etc

    Well, we are aware that 105 Superintendents of Police do not mean that Singapore is very safe. It may be simply the number of SUPT's.

    Agree.
    The number which I counted, subject to any error in my counting, are those reflected on the directory, and do not include DAC and SUPT who are with the ISD, CPIB and other agencies. Therefore, the actual total is likely to be higher than 23 DAC and 105 SUPTS. I submit that the total may be too many for a city state of 5 million people. There are much less in the Toronto Police Force, where there are much fewer SUPT and STAFF SUPT below the Chief of Police.

    it'll be safer if we have 30,000 corporals/sergeants/staff sergeants/station inspectors

    boots on the ground not staff officers in the offices will make their presence felt
    Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions.

    Senior officers in the SAF (also from the govt directory, except for those not listed, for example, COL who are defence attaches with embassies):
    LG: 1
    MG: 2
    BG: 21
    RADM: 6 (probably one is a 2 star, which is equivalent to a MG)
    COL: 45
