The Police Orchestra developed out of the Godba ljudske milice, established in 1948. The orchestra regularly participates in protocol obligations, police ceremonies, public celebrations, charity events, international sports events, as well as solo gigs at home and abroad in cooperation with Ljubljana Musical Youth and the Slovenian Association of Bands. In 2018 it celebrated its 70th anniversary with a documentary exhibition at the Maribor Regional Museum.

Repertoire and collaborations

The orchestra's repertoire consists of classical, film, popular, and jazz music, excerpts from operas ballets, cantatas, and musicals, as well as adaptations of popular songs. In 2005 and 2006 the orchestra recorded for the Dutch record label, DE HASKE, which is one of the world's leading publishers of musical material for wind orchestras.

The Police Orchestra has held several premières. They have performed in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, England, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Macedonia, and Croatia. Among several Slovene conductors the orchestra has also cooperated with foreign ones: Jakob de Haan, Rien Ratz, Alfred Reed, Manfred Schneider, Franz Peter Cibulka, Johan De Meij, Thomas Doss, Roger Boutry, Johann Moesenbichler, Peter Kleine Schaars, and Jan Cober.
