European Police Performance Badge (EPLA)

Police work puts high demands on officers' physical fitness which, in turn, is an important prerequisite for professional policing.

Physical fitness comprises the following components: endurance, strength, speed and coordination. The ability to master these skills relies on a high level of physical performance.

USPE awards a joint European Police Performance Badge EPLA to promote the physical fitness of all police officers serving in the USPE member countries, furthering the European idea and developing a common "corporate identity" amongst European police forces.
