Uniform: Norwegian Retro Police Male

This is an old police uniform used in the 1930s and 1940s. The police was a localized force in the cities, and the sheriff patrolled the districts/countryside. The first nationwide state police was created in 1932, it was created to assist local police and sheriff forces when needed. In 1937 the state police was again reorganized to a new role as Utrykningspolitiet (which today is a specialized police force for road and traffic safety).

The police force and the sheriffs were two different agencies until 1994, when they were joined as the Police and Sheriff's Agency.
