I also have a PPK marked one. It stands for Polizei Präsidium Köln. So it can be linked to a single building in the Cologne town center.

Very nice gun. I also have 2 police marked 1914 Mauser pistols one is marked S.P.L. And the other P.P.K. 221 1920 stamped. nice piece of history you got.
S. P. L. is Schutzpolizei Leipzig (Saxon pattern, S. P. instead of just S.).

While Köln was part of Prussia, until 1930 it was one of three Rhineland cities (with Koblenz and Mainz) under Allied occupation as a result of Versailles. During that time the police did not follow Prussian regs, but used the non-standard P. P. K. instead of the S. Kö.

Vlim your Mauser is in really nice condition. I recently saw and bid on a L.M. marked 1914. It saw service in ww-1 and had the trigger guard Prussian eagle. Unfortunately it was as really rough condition wise but still neat to see.
