It’s a little tough to tell, but he appears to be from a German Feldgedarmerie (Military Field Police) unit. Judging by his suspenders, he’s an officer. The cuffs on most German uniforms issued to the SS and the regular army had turn back cuffs on the officer’s uniforms that matched the rest of the tunic (The closely spaced buttons are more evidence):

Another giveaway (for me) is the eagle on his arm. It took me a while to notice it, but if you look at his left arm, you’ll see a roundish shape with a point coming out of it:

There’s a possibility that he is still SS (They had their own FG units). It’s also possible that he is Heer (Their dress uniforms were almost identical the that of the FG, but gernerally lacked pockets)

I’m putting my money though on one of the numerous Ordnungspolizei (regular field police) or Einsatzgruppen (Field Police staffed by SS) units.

**TL;DR:** Pretty good chance he’s not in the SS. Maybe getting payed by them though.
