Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Originally known as the International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC), it fell into Nazi hands (due to its having been based in Vienna) during World War II. After the war, it was revived, moved to Paris, and it took the name Interpol as a telegraphic address in 1946 (similar to a Twitter handle these days, as in telegraphs, each character counted, and so a shorter name made it easier to telegraph!) and took Interpol as its common name in 1956. Most UN members have Interpol bureaus (except for a few Pacific island nations and North Korea.)
