Small-minded sort of officer? (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'small-minded' is the first definition.

'sort of officer?' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for petty that I've seen before include "Trivial, contemptible" , "Insignificant or trivial" , "This cash is of a trivial amount" , "Trivial, piffling" , "small" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
