Could it be that the second one appears to be C.I.D

I know noting about the Police Service, but it looks to me like 3rd Class in 1909 and 2nd Class in 1914. Could it simply mean he was promoted to a higher grade?

Googling sargeant 2nd clas cid.      Refers to a Inspector assisted by a detective sergeant 1st class, looks like they were ranks only within the CID, within a division.
