Another distinctive feature of theuniform was the wearing of a field blouse open at the neck with a brown later field-gray shirt and black tie. In 1944, all Orpo generals also gained equivalent rank so that, in the event of capture by the Allies, the Orpo general would hold status as a military officer instead of a police official.

Alternatively, a Danebrog was worn on the right collar piece. The special rank did not entail any additional insignia other than that worn by the regular Reichsinspekteur rank.
