    Really? That doesn't match with what I've read. Polizei manpower came from the police forces (Himmler had control of those) and were generally older and less motivated than 1,2,3,5SS.

        The leadership sources were police and WSS.

        • here is an article on the origins of Hermann Goring's land formations (Paratrooper and "Parachute-panzer"). Basically Landespolizei General Göring/Regiment Goring was his version of the Leibstandarte. From this loyal cadre of state policemen converted to military trained troops, came the paratroopers and the herman goring regiment/brigade/division.
