A chief of police is the title given to an appointed official or an elected one in the chain of command of a police department in North America. A chief of police may be known as a police chief or sometimes just a chief, while some countries favour other titles such as commissioner or chief constable. A police chief is appointed by and answerable to a national or local government, with the main exception being elected sheriffs in the United States; the precise role of a chief of police varies sometimes within a country. The larger a police force or department, the more that some duties will be delegated to mid-ranked officers; the following list is a general sense of the actions and responsibilities held by any chief of police. Oversight of a department's operations and budgeting. Oversight of officers. Limited disciplinary actions to be addressed on infractions of policy, regulations, laws or ordinances. Full dismissal or heavy sanctioning of officer duty. Promotion and rank placement of officers.
Production and development of department policies and regulations. Liaison with the governments that oversee and fund the department. In small police departments and updating of department equipment such as police vehicles, communications equipment and uniforms. In the smallest police departments, the chief may carry out the same duties as regular officers. Police chiefs are sworn police officers, therefore wear police uniform and have the power of arrest, though there are exceptions. In practice, their work is administrative in all but the smallest police departments; the rare occasions when police chiefs make arrests have drawn media coverage. In 2014, Bernard Hogan-Howe made an arrest. A taxi driver had approached Hogan-Howe for help, unaware that he was the city's police commissioner. In 2017, Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck arrested a police officer on suspicion of a sexual offence.

The exceptions are: the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ontario Provincial Police, South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Police Service, Vancouver Police Department, West Vancouver Police Department, Quebec City and the Sûreté du Québec. In the province of Ontario, Canada, a chief of police must be a sworn police officer and therefore have completed training at the Ontario Police College or have served a probationary period with another recognized police force; this requirement is legislated in the Police Services Act of Ontario. The legislation states in Section 2. Section 44.2 of the PSA defines the training requirements. There was a case in the police department of Guelph, where a human resource manager was promoted to the position of deputy chief but was required to complete training at the OPC; the candidate is selected by a police services board. Ranks below the Chief are stylized as Deputy Chief, Deputy Chief Constable and Deputy Commissioner or Associate Director. In Indonesia, the Chief of the National Police of Indonesia is colloquially dubbed: "Kapolri", an acronym of "Kepala Kepolisian Negara Republik Indonesia" meaning "Head of the National Police of the Republic of Indonesia".
He is a four-star ranking officer in the National Police. The National Police Chief is elected by the President based on the approval of the House of Representatives and is directly responsible to the President. Since Indonesia adopts the system of a unified "national police", the chief of the Indonesian national police holds strong responsibility in policing authorities nationally across Indonesia; the police chief conducts strong relations and work together with the Commander of the National Armed Forces. In line with the general features of unified structure of local governments, all chiefs of the Indonesian police, in district level, municipal level, provincial level in Indonesia, are subordinates of Kapolri, the National Police Chief. In the United Kingdom, the chief police officer for 43 of the 45 territorial police forces and the 3 special police forces holds the rank of Chief Constable; the exceptions are the Metropolitan Police Service and City of London Police, where the chief police officer instead holds the rank of Commissioner.
The umbrella term for the chief constables and commissioners is chief police officer. The term "chief officer", by contrast, includes the chief police officers and their deputies and assistants; the National Police Chiefs Council is the association for chief officers.

Chief of police is the most common title for the head of a local police department. Alternate titles for a chief of police include police commissioner, police superintendent, police president or police director. In large urban areas, some departments are led by a civilian overseer referred to as a commissioner; the New York City Police Department is one such case, where the police chief is the most senior sworn officer.
