Polizei

It is extremely hard to categorize all the helmet types worn by the Ordnungspolizei and link them to certain branches within this organization.

The Ordnungspolizei encompassed the Police combat units as well as all regular Polizei units like Traffic police and criminal police. On top of that a lot of so-called civil service units were also absorbed by the Ordnungspolizei like the Feuerwehr and Luftschutzpolizei. 

More on the Ordnungspolizei here. The Combat Police helmets page is here.
