Excellent information and photos, interesting to see that a new uniform was introduced.

It wasn't just the gendarmerie or local auxiliaries - chetniks, royalists and pro Serb nationalists used by the Italians as local security. The local police or "police guardians" were used.
Formed on the 1920s for policing urban areas, initially in dark blue uniforms and helmet, changing to a more modern style green uniform influenced by Czechoslovakian police uniforms in 1938.
Armed with pistols plus rifles and a WW1 style Austrian ammunition pouch, brown belts, officers had a Sam brown shoulder belt.
