A QUARTET of Slovak policemen will be on hand to help the thousands of Slovak tourists planning to travel to Croatia this summer. The Slovak policemen will be based in the popular holiday destination from July 1 until September 1, the SITA newswire reported. The aim of the project is to provide greater security for Slovak tourists.

The Slovak policemen will help Slovak tourists when travelling across Croatia, monitor the Croatian police's dealings with Slovak citizens, and intervene to prevent any potential incidents involving Slovak tourists.

Senior police officers from Croatia and Slovakia are due to sign a cooperation agreement covering the summer tourist season in the near future.

Two Slovak policemen will operate within the Split-Dalmatia police directorate. They will be based in the town of Makarska; the Makarska Riviera is a popular destination of Slovak holiday-makers.
The second team will be deployed in the Lika-Senj region, based in the town of Gospić: the A1 highway, the main route towards the coast, crosses the region. Their task will be to help Slovak drivers on their way to the Adriatic coast and assist the Croatian police when dealing with car accidents involving Slovaks.

The Slovak policemen will always act in cooperation with their Croatian counterparts, and will not have any formal police powers; the stress will be on monitoring the activities of the Croatian police.
