European Police Performance Badge (EPLA)

Note: The member countries shall be responsible for ensuring proper procedure and presentation as well as the procurement of the badges, scorecards and the certificates.

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.
