Helen is a rural Georgia logging town that wanted to get a new image and survive. In the late 1960's they modeled themselves after a Bavarian village. Stores and restaurants, every place styled their buildings like those in Bavaria. The police department followed in that school of thought and put "POLIZEI" on their patches and vehicles. Based on the law they had to change "POLIZEI" to "POLICE" again.
