The German civilian police force was disbanded by the Allies. Pretty quickly a new German police force was established (under Allied control). Initially these cops were neither allowed to bear fire-arms nor uniforms.

Those two units were wearing the standard Wehrmacht uniform except for the eagle with the svastika on the right breast which has been removed. I mean, the eagle.
The only excêption was the SS-Feldgendarmerie: they were not kept for that tasks for obvious reasons.

To my knowledge,
In Heer has the Feldgendarmerie, the Luftwaffe has their LuftFeldgendarmerie and the Kriegsmarine has their Marinefeldgendarmerie...Not to mention about the Waffen SS who had their SS-Feldgendarmerie..How about the Heer and Waffen SS Reiter units? Do they had their own military police?
Besides, does anyone knew any good books for German Military and Security Police 1933-1945?
Any books covering the subject of
Gestapo (Geheime Staats Polizei)
German Railway Security Police (is there such unit?)
German motorized military and security police...
German Seaport and Naval Base security police..
