    Another thread got me thinking about the term for a senior officer that looks after, mentors and furthers the career of a younger officer. The NYPD calls them a 'Rabbi.' In Baltimore we called them a 'hook'. I understand that in Chicago they are called a "China man". Any other unique names for title out there?

    I’m not familiar with that type of officer at my agency. Is that an actual duty/position or just an officer who takes it upon himself to do so?

    No, definitely nothing official. Some might say "The Good Ole Boy Network" is kind-of the same thing, but on a bigger scale.

    We say mentor for the higher up. Golden boy for the lower ranking person.

    The meglomaniac who was chief when I started in Lexington had six assistant chiefs who pretty much followed him wherever he went. They were collectively called "the ducklings" by the troops. Some of them had individual nicknames. The female token, who was over the Bureau of Adminstration and Services was called Assistant Chief Cake and Punch (when she wasn't being called a c***) because that was pretty much all she was allowed to be in charge of. The black token, who's first name was Ulysses, was known as Useless.

    That does not exist.

    The way I heard it was an 8 was a knock-out-gorgeous girl. A 9 was same with a Ferrari. A 10 was the 9 who let you drive it.

    But I still maintain that a real 10 does not exist. It just may take a while to find the reason why she's not one.

    "El Viejo" or "Gramps".

    If the Officer didn't have at least 15 years on, they were derisively called "Cabin Boy".

    In the Marine Corps, we called them Priest or Father....


    As in, when you screwed up, you would confess to your Priest, who forgave you and covered your butt.

    Also heard Rabbi used some, but just not that many Jewish folks around at the time, so it was less used.

    According to the Hot/Crazy Matrix a "10" is a Tranny.

    “Rabbi” hasn’t been used in a generation or two. It’s called a “ hook “ in the NYPD too. And if the hook is really big, its a “ crane”-lol
