    It is not police but a Imperial Japanese Army junior officer's parade sword.

    For years, this pattern sword was mistakenly identified as a "police sword." Just like the IJA model 1944 pattern sword was mistakenly identified as a "Japanese Marine " sword.

    If you are focusing on Japanese swords used by the IJA/IJN during the wartime years, a good reference would be:
    Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition by: Jim Dawson
    A little expensive but a great reference book to have in your library.
