British police refer to their credentials as my "Police Warrant Card". Another reference, Texas Rangers were commissioned by the Director, not the Governor https://www.texasranger.org/texas-ranger-museum/researching-rangers/laws-1935/

I was always taught it goes to being appointed an officer - whether the sovereign issued you a commission or a warrant.

Thanks FKL. I like the history our members provide. So much to learn here.

I was sworn under PC 832.XX and that is my limited knowledge of other forms of LE powers/credentials.

I’ll retire in Nov-deputy sheriff, as a reserve I get no benefits except I will obtain a LE firearms card and be considered a retired deputy. My long time in LE will not have been wasted.(Oklahoma)

Thanks, Sir.
Same thing, different terms, I believe. Graduated from a full length academy, have powers of arrest.

Edited to add: Thanks, FKL. Had not heard of credentials being referred to as a "Commission Book".

I am glad to be affiliated with you people here.
My input will be limited, because it is a chore to post on my Samsung Tablet notebook.
Some veteran friends and associates have mentioned your forum, in the past few months.
I appreciate the acceptance by the Administrator. It will be a pleasure to learn here... from you good people.

Thank for allowing me on board.

I was in the USAF from 1986-1992 and was assigned to the KC-10 aircraft.

In 1996 I began working in the African safari business and managed a lodge south of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. We conduct hunting and photographic safaris in Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Thank you again for allowing me to join and I look forward to following the many interesting conversations on this site.

Hello there!
My introduction is simple. Served briefly in 1969-70. No, I didn’t go to Viet Nam. I’m an old, tired, worn-out old fart with too much time on his hands.

Hi Folks,

I am a 64 year old non-military man who has the utmost respect for those who serve in our military. I am also a lawyer and have zero tolerance for thoseimpostors who try to steal your valor. I have met two gentlemen in the fairly recent past who claim to be former Navy Seals. The first is in the late 60s...early 70s....his name is Jerry Fiore from RI claims to have been in Seal Team 6. The other man is probably in his 40s from CT Matthew Dillon who also states he was a Navy Seal. I have loads of friends who have served with honor in Vietnam and the middle East. Thanks all for your service.

Welcome aboard Csback. For future reference, it's properly rendered "SEALs" because it's an acronym.
