Amid the emergency situation affecting Slovenia, the Police Academy in Tacen provided shelter to those who had to leave their homes due to the floods today, 4 August 2023.

The Police Academy was contacted by firefighters, the Civil Protection and local residents living in the Tacen area. Due to the high water flow and the exceptional amount of rain, many houses and buildings along the Sava were flooded. We immediately started informing residents to evacuate and head to safety and offered them shelter at the Police Academy.
