good day,

depends on how you count.
this is from the nypd web site ( -

How many police officers are there in NYPD?
There are currently 39,110 police officers in NYPD. This is the total number of Police Officers, Detectives, Sergeants, Lieutenants, Captains, Deputy Inspectors, Inspectors, Deputy Chiefs, Assistant Chiefs, and Bureau Chiefs budgeted for fiscal year 2003.

and here is the information on the "iraqi security forces", as written by joe galloway (, dated Oct 6, 2004) -
A senior American military offer, who asked that he not be named, told me this week that at present we have 230,000 Iraqi security and military forces in uniform. This number will top 250,000 within another month or so.

so, kerik has had to handle a somewhat large bureaucracy that is subject to scrutiny by the pols. the only question is, "what type of system will a cop implement/use overlooking security at a national level?"
