Latvian Police Battalions
Latvian Police Battalions were World War II paramilitary units created from Latvian volunteers and conscripts by the Nazi German authorities who had occupied the country in June 1941. Police Battalion recruits consisted primarily of those who had served in Latvian police, army and militia organization which had been disbanded upon the Soviet occupation of Latvia in 1940. Police Battalions carried out guard duties, raids against Soviet partisans in Belarus and Latvia and fought on the Eastern Front.
