Third Reich Medals offer
A German 1945 Sicherheitspolizei Dienstausweis
(CS1662) We have the chance to offer an exceptionally rare 1945 Sicherheitspolizei Dienstausweis
(SiPo - Security police identification card)
complete with its rare celluloid ID card holder issued to a Detective in the Kriminalpolizei (Kripo - Criminal Police – CID), as identified by the diagonal green stripe.
Those SiPo Dienstausweis issued to members of the Gestapo omitted this stripe. The holder of this card held the rank of Kriminalobersekretär (SS-Untersturmführer – Detective Inspector) who served as a detective in München-Gladbach.
The card shows the Dienstausweis number of 4175 and this detective would have held a Kriminapolizei Dienstmarke (Criminal police warrant disc) with the same number. The card displays the holder's name, rank, duty station and signature. At the bottom of the card is the stamped signature of the Chef der Sicherheitspolizei und SD (Chief of the Security Police and Security Service), SS – Obergruppenführer (Lieutenant General) Ernst Kaltenbrunner.
The rear of the card carries the authority for the holder to carry a firearm and ammunition.
There were four different types of Kriminalpolizei headquarters throughout Nazi Germany and the size of these was determined by their area population and local requirements. There was approximately one Kripo detective per 5,000 inhabitants.
Kriminalpolizei Leitstellen - KPLSt - Regional Headquarters
Kriminalpolizei Stellen - KPSt - Sub-Regional Headquarters
Kriminalpolizei Außendienststellen - KPAuDSt - Large branch office
Kriminalpolizei Außenposten - KPAuP - Small branch office
Wartime allied intelligence research shows that there were approximately 10 or more Kriminalpolizei officials in communities of over 50,000 inhabitants. If a town had a population over 50k and therefore having 10+ Kripo officials, the Kripo office would be called a Kriminalpolizei-Außendienstelle (KPAuDSt - Criminal police large branch office).
KPAuDSt München-Gladbach had an approximate population of 128,000, thereby qualifying them for around 25 Kripo officials and making this Kriminalobersekretär one of their most senior detectives.
Any Sicherheitspolizei Dienstausweise are exceptionally rare with less than 50 known to be in collections worldwide and those to KPAuDSt even more so with just 4 known examples and this being the only surviving 1945 issue.
These identification cards are so rare that not even the Imperial War Museum has one in their collection.
