Caption says: German soldiers watch intently as they move past a Soviet POW made to clear Russian mines left by his retreating comrades.

I don't know this or not but I wouldn't think there would be SS police. Althought some of our police think they are in the SS

there is Waffen SS and regular SS..... regular SS was a form of police basically, the Waffen SS was the military branch.

SS have police forces....most was made up from German policemen, and also later on foreigners (just as Waffen SS had a large foreign division/volunteer group)..

He's a FeldJaeger. A German MP. I can't recall off the top of my head what they call the breastplate but it is the same as a field brassard.
