SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTION 
Why did Hitler create surveillance forces in Germany besides the regular police?


Solution

(i) Special surveillance and security forces were created to control and order society in ways that the Nazis wanted.
(ii)Apart from the already existing regular police in green uniform and the SA or the Storm Troopers, these included the Gestapo (secret state police), the SS (the protection squads), criminal police and the Security Service (SD).
(iii)It was the extra constitutional powers of these newly organised forces that gave the Nazi state its reputation as the most dreaded criminal state.
(iv)People could now be detained in Gestapo torture chambers, rounded up and sent to concentration camps, deported at will or arrested without any legal procedures.
