Deputy was a title used by a variety of species, usually denoting a function in security or law enforcement.

On Earth, "deputy" frequently indicated a rank in law enforcement that was subordinate to the role of sheriff. One could be deputized temporarily in moments of crisis. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas")

Deputy was also the title given to Bajoran security officers stationed on Deep Space 9. They were under the command of Constable Odo. Odo was also empowered to temporarily deputize persons if he deemed it necessary for an investigation, as he did to Quark in 2370 to force his assistance in tracking the movement of weapons to the Alliance for Global Unity. (DS9: "Emissary", "The Circle")
