Police Day - 27 June 1 October 2009

These days the Slovenian Police are organising several events to celebrate 27 June, designated as National Police Day. This date was chosen to remind us of the ten-day war for independence and the historic events of 1991, when the Police joined in battle with the Slovenian people to fight against the aggressive force of the Yugoslav Army, which wanted to prevent the inevitable through the use of force.
