is it at all possible someone could help me identify the uniforms in these photos. They are of my grandfather. In the crowd he has the arrow pointing at him and in the other he is the man on the right. Any help would be so appreciated.

These are Ordnungspolizei uniforms ( Dark blue uniforms are for Feuerschutzpolizei )
Your relative it appears with a rank of Polizei-Unterwachtmeister

From the dark shade of the sleeve eagles worn in the larger group picture, he was very likely with the Schutzpolizei der Gemeinden [Municipial Police in smaller towns], who had a dark-red branch color.
That picture with the mixed wear of dark blue and mottled green uniforms was taken when the new uniforms were being phased in.
