Warsaw ghetto: Jewish Ghetto Police deport Jews to German Death Camps

Jewish Police, were auxiliary police units organized within the Jewish ghettos of German-occupied Eastern Europe by local Judenrat councils under the ultimate authority of the Nazi occupiersused for requisitioning, roundup, escorting displaced persons and deportation actions to German death camps. Their number is estimated at around 4,200 people. There was a secret department, Section 13, known as the "Jewish Gestapo". It specialised in tracking down Jewish people outside the Ghetto walls, as well their Polish helpers, and often profited by extorting them.
