Gerd is 100% correct

It was indeed a bit more complex tought .... City Polices and Gendarmerie for the US zones as well, GB zone normaly rural districts and and and..........
To study policing in Germany after WWII is quite a project. I have been collecting post WWII German police insignia since 1986 and even now I learn new things.

As Gerd said, the differences in the organization structure can be seen from US to British to French to Russian sectors. Also, interesting enough each country also brought with it some of it's local "police" history. You see this in the US sector with the use of breast badges !!

A good topic to study, but make sure you have lots of headache medicine
