Notes:
1 The duty of a sostituto ufficiale di pubblica sicurezza luogotenente (lieutenant) is not a rank but a position (or function) attributed only to NCOs with the rank of "maresciallo aiutante" (marshal adjutant) with at least 15 years of experience in the rank.

2 The title of "sostituto ufficiale di pubblica sicurezza" or "s.u.p.s." (substitute officer of public security – s.o.p.s.) is not a rank but a position attributed only to NCOs with the rank of "maresciallo aiutante".

3 A simple carabineer does not wear rank insignia
