    DSP -district Superintendent of Police
    DCP -Deputy Commissioner of Police
    Name itself suggests that DCP is more powerful and higher rank in Police service. Both are equally respectable.
    Those people who clear civil service (group 1) exam conducted by respective state commission such as MPSC, KPSC, GPSC etc and selected for police cadre are appointed as DSP of a district. A DSP is not an IPS officer. Only after 8-9 years of service a DSP can get promoted to IPS.
    All IPS officers start their initial job as ASP (additional superintendent of police) . Depending on number of years of service, they will get promotions to higher cadre such as DCP,ACP etc. DCP is the police officer who is in charge of the police forces of a district
    Usually after 10-13 years of service, an IPS officer can become DCP

    DSP is equivalent to ACP posted in cities like Delhi & Mumbai and DCP is equivalent to SSP in State level. (in short explanation)

    ACPs positions are in cities e.g. Delhi & Mumbai and equivalent to Deputy Superintendent of Police, Circle Officer, Senior Field Officer (R) Cabinet Secretariat (GOI) in State Level and Assistant Commandants of CAPFs.
    Whereas DCPs positions are in cities e.g. Delhi & Mumbai and equivalent to Senior Superintendent of Police, Director (R) Cabinet Secretariat (GOI) in State Level and Commandants of CAPFs.
