Bavaria is one of the German federal states with which the Slovenian police have very intensive cooperation in different fields of work and at different levels. It represents one of our strategic partners. The cooperation is institutionalised within the framework of the Permanent Mixed Slovenian - Bavarian Commission and has become especially strong after 1995.
