Summary/Abstract: Basing on previously unknown archival documents, the author discusses the Polish Police functionaries’ participation in deportations of the Jewish population from the Radomsko county to the ghetto in Radomsko or to death centres. The blue policemen participated in the “Jewish campaigns” not only as guards, but they also took a direct part in both the loading of Jews and Jewish possessions and in the stamping of Jewish property. The policemen delegated from the local police stations to assist at the deportations were paid stipends from the budget of the Union of Communes in Radomsko.
