The Slovenian National Police (SNP) is part of the Ministry of the Interior, and is made up of eight police directorates which control 111 police stations throughout the country.

In Slovenia, the police operate at three different levels:

  • General Police Directorate (state);
  • Police Directorates (regional);
  • Police Stations (local).

Headed by a Director General who is appointed by the Slovenian government, the SNP has the mandate to;

  • Protect people and property;
  • Prevent and investigate crime, arrest criminals and their accomplices;
  • Maintain public order;
  • Control traffic;
  • Protect and control borders;
  • Ensure passport and immigration control.

The General Police Directorate – the police headquarters in Ljubljana – is made up of:

  • The Service of the Director General of the Police;
  • Police Specialities Directorate;
  • Uniformed Police Directorate;
  • Criminal Police Directorate;
  • National Forensic Laboratory;
  • Police Academy;
  • Information and Telecommunications Office.


International police cooperation activities are performed by the International Police Cooperation Division (IPCD) of Slovenia’s Criminal Police Directorate. It is the essential law enforcement platform for Slovenian police investigations which require co-operation with INTERPOL’s international police community. Slovenia’s INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) function is undertaken by the Criminal Police Directorate at the General Police Directorate (headquarters).

IPCD is made up of two units which provide a permanent 24-hour service:

  • International operations section which deals with  operational cases;
  • SIRENE section, responsible for queries about persons and objects.

In 2009, INTERPOL Ljubljana integrated INTERPOL's databases into the Slovenian police network, as part of a strategy to boost national security and prevent criminal activity in Slovenia. This means that police across the country have instant and automated access to INTERPOL’s global databases and can obtain critical data on wanted persons, vehicles and stolen and lost travel documents in just seconds. Now, all local police districts, and the police at each border crossing and international airport are connected to INTERPOL's databases 24 hours a day. With this new capacity, Slovenian police officers in the field can quickly determine if a person is a potential threat to national security.
