I was also interested in the question, which you raised. Hence, in 1970, I asked a Detective of the 78th Squad in Brooklyn (who was 27 years old in 1941, as well as an NYPD Officer), what the policy was. He did not serve in uniform during World War Two, while other cops did. He told me that the decision was up to the local draft board. There did not seem to be any consistency, as policies from one draft board to another (even within NYC), seemed to vary.
