While looking through Postcrossing profiles (I sometimes click on names in the ticker of recent events ont he home page), I came across a mention of a city called Police, in Poland.
A bit more investigation showed that there are several places of that name, in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia.
Apparently, the name is derived from a word meaning “field” (pole, polje, etc.).
I also found it interesting that the German names for those places aren’t identical: there’s at least Politz, Pölitz, Pullitz, Polleitz.
