STA, 3 July 2019 - Continuing the tradition, the Slovenian police will send three officers to Croatia to help the Croatian authorities handle cases involving Slovenian citizens during the peak summer tourist season between 17 July and 18 August.
Slovenian tourists in Croatia will be able to see Slovenian police officers in the city of Pula and on the islands of Krk and Pag, the police announced on Wednesday.
They will participate in procedures carried out by their Croatian colleagues involving Slovenians, primarily to enable better communication and provide Slovenian tourists with explanations regarding these procedures.
They will be wearing Slovenian police uniforms but will not be armed, and will not be implementing powers and taking measures under the sole jurisdiction of the Croatian police.
Slovenian tourists in Croatia will be able to contact Slovenian police officers through the Slovenian embassy in Zagreb or the relevant police stations in Pula, Krk and Pag.
Before their departure to Croatia, the three police officers were received today by Deputy Police Commissioner Tomaž Pečjak.
While Slovenian police officers help out in Croatia during summers, Croatian police officers are in Slovenia during winters, touring ski slopes popular among Croatian tourists.
