RanksPolice officers who perform tasks in uniform have the right and obligation to wear uniform in accordance with regulations. Types of police uniforms, their complementary parts and rank insignia are determined by a special decree. These mark the position of police officers in the hierarchy of the police organisation (police officers, police inspector, police advisor, assistant director general of the police, deputy director general of the police and director general of the police). Special rank insignia is specified for police officer candidates and auxiliary police officers.

Police officers can wear on their uniform only the rank insignia that is specified for their job by the relevant act regulating police organisation and systematisation. Rank insignia is worn on the upper parts of the uniform, on shoulders or on a strip on the left side at chest height. Police officers wear the police logo on the left, and the logo of uniformed police on the right sleeve of the uniform (with certain exceptions), and the police badge on headgear. They wear a patch with an inscription that reads POLICIJA above or on the left pocket, or on the left side of the upper parts of the uniform. On the right side of the upper parts of the uniform, at the height of that inscription, police officers must also wear an identification code, which contains their personal name or number.

Police symbols and specialities logos

Their affiliation to the profession is expressed in being proud to wear the police uniform and other police insignia. It is shown by respect to the hierarchically structured police organisation and in mutual cooperation and protection, team spirit and selfless assistance to colleagues. Outwardly, it shows primarily with the use of official police symbols and specialities logos.

The police symbols most recognisable to the public are certainly the logo and flag of the police, the badge adorning the headgear of the uniform, and the logos of uniformed and criminal police. Internal organisational units of the General Police Directorate also have logos of their own (for example, National Forensic Laboratory, Special Unit, Security and Protection Centre, Police Academy), as do operational and communication centres, while affiliation to a certain field of work is shown by specialities logos (for example, for maritime police, traffic police, police dog handlers, mounted police unit, honorary police unit, mountain unit).Police logo

The logo of the police is a hexagon with a dark blue circle inside it. There are stylised gold-yellow rays between the circle and the edge of the hexagon, and the circle contains the coat of arms of Slovenia. Under the coat-of-arms are three stylised green linden leaves on both sides. The inscription REPUBLIKA SLOVENIJA is above the coat of arms in a semi-circle, and the inscription POLICIJA is below the coat of arms. The inscriptions are gold-yellow.
