Comandante Oigo esta palabra mucho en películas norteñas mexicanas. La traducción literal en inglés es “commander.” ¿Pero es posible que se utilice para aguacil (sheriff)? Gracias.

And, keep in mind, in a Sheriff's department, there is only one Sheriff (el comandante). The others officers are "deputies".

Comandante is a military or policial rank means commander or its equivalent luteniant colonel. There are also firefighters and sheriffs with that rank. Comandante doesn´t mean sheriff but it could be his rank.
