A police officer is the lowest rank in the NYPD rank structure. They are the rank right below sergeant. Note that detectives are still officers, "detective" is just merely a title, therefore a detective does not have the authority to issue orders to officers. Officers wear a full blue uniform, with a silver badge.

When officers are promoted to detective, it is called getting their "gold shield", because of the gold color of their badges.
