As of December 31, 2009, the Slovenian police force employed 7,842 officers, at a ratio of 38.21 officers per 10,000 of the population.[1] It also employed 766 criminologists and 91 members of the Slovenian Police Special Unit. Of the force's 2,523 vehicles, there were 1726 police cars (including civilian), 168 response vehicles, 240 all-terrain vehicles and 185 motorbikes.[1] To complement these land vehicles, the Slovenian police utilize 4 boats, as well as 6 helicopters. The police officers in Slovenia were armed with the 7.65 mm Crvena Zastava M-70 handgun, which have been replaced by the Beretta M92 and Beretta 8000. Some units also use SIG Sauer and Glock pistols. Supporting weapons include Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine guns, Heckler & Koch G36 and Zastava M-70 assault rifles.[1]

Complement and equipment

The Slovenian National Police force operates under the Slovenian Ministry of the Interior at three levels, local, general and regional, and is headquartered in Ljubljana.[2] Slovenia is divided into 8 police directorates which control 111 police stations, all of which come under the jurisdiction of the Director General of the Police.[2] In addition to this regular police force, Slovenia also employs the Specialna Enota Policije, utilised for Counter-Terrorism and other high-risk tasks that are too dangerous or too difficult for regular police units.
