Superintendent (Supt), often shortened to "Super", is a rank in British police services and in most English-speaking Commonwealth nations. In many Commonwealth countries the full version is Superintendent of Police (SP). The rank is also still used in the former British Colony of Hong Kong.
In Canada, the rank of Superintendent is usually the next senior rank up from Inspector. Some police forces also have the higher rank of Staff Superintendent (Senior Staff Superintendent) or Area Superintendent.
