Captain of Aurors is a position at the Magical Congress of the United States of America that presumably played a part in overseeing the work of American Aurors. In 1926, the position was held by M. P. Carneirus. Their signature often appeared on wanted posters made by MACUSA as certification.
Behind the scenes
- In most U.S. police departments, the rank of captain are usually held by veterans with extensive experience who is often the officer in charge of a precinct. Seen as how MACUSA ranked theirs in a similar fashion, it can be assumed the Captain has a position of leadership, but not necessarily is the officer in charge. This is supported by how the commander (sometimes used instead of 'inspector' outrank the captains).
- It is possible that the Captain is in charge of a specific division, but still is answerable to the Department of Aurors, which presumably is headed by the Auror Commissioner.
