He is not a policeman

Some of you realized that ocean kayak OLO is marked by polish flag and two inscriptions "Police" and "Poland". The first thought could be that Aleksander is polish policeman, or at least that he is sponsored by some police department.
This is not true. Explanation is different. 
"Police" is the name of Aleksanders hometown. It's a small city in north-west part of Poland, close to Baltic Sea, and German border. He told me many funny stories how his town helped him with contacts with police during expeditions.  
Polish word "Police" should be pronounced as "politze".
