Latvian policemen depart to help Slovenia handle refugee flow

Twenty officers of the Latvian State Police on Monday left for Slovenia to help the Slovenian police handle the flow of asylum seekers, the Latvian police told BNS Tuesday.

The Latvian police and the police forces of the other two Baltic states responded to this appeal and sent their officers to help Slovenia.

The Latvian policemen will travel 2,000 kilometers to Slovenia in their police cars.

Their main tasks in Slovenia will be helping the Slovenian colleagues with maintaining public order, prevention of crimes and patrolling.

It is planned that the mission will last a month, during which the policemen will provide assistance to the local police and accumulate experience.
