JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate: Uniform identification #general

Hi,

I've posted a picture on Viewmate at the following link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66579

Could you help me identify the uniform this young man is wearing ?

The picture belonged to my great grandparents: Fiszel and Mechalina
GRUNBAUM/BAUMAN.
They were both born in Warsaw in 1877 and 1884.

The photographer who took this picture was in activity >from 1893 till 1909.

The number 3 appears on the cap the man is wearing.

My question: Is it be a soldier's uniform (military service or
Russo-Japanese war) or a policeman's uniform ?

There was a rumor in my family that my grandfather's brother (born in 1873)
was a policeman in Warsaw.
Not sure if it's true. And not sure it is him in this picture.

You can either answer me directly or on the Viewmate form.

Thank you.
