Top Athletes Section

The Slovenian police employ some of Slovenia’s - indeed the world’s - best athletes, providing them with full-fledged support while in return athletes use their influence to improve general attitudes towards sport in the police. Top-level athletes and coaches employed by the Slovenian police also contribute to maintaining public trust in the police through their involvement in promotional, preventive, sport, educational and other activities that are often carried out in cooperation with other institutions. Top-level athletes in police uniform are our ambassadors in many preventive projects.
