Extracts out of the    of the IPA Reutte

 

   

22.01.1973

Officers of the district Reutte came the first time into contact with the "International Police Association": Members of the German local branch Highway-Police Stuttgart visited Reutte and organized in common with the Gendarmerieposten and the Local Police of Reutte a social evening and the next day a pre-lunch drink. But in unaware of purpose and aim of the IPA only few officers from Reutte came to this staging. The unease of the guests could be seen easily, because they had hoped for more interest.

   

Mai 1974

But the friends from Stuttgart didn´t abandon and already in the next year their return invitation was following. The 14 members of the tourist party from Reutte travelled for 2 days to Stuttgart, where they became acquainted with the worth of German hospitality. Accommodated in a guesthouse in Sindelfingen, they visited the shopping centre, the inner city, the government building, the television tower and other sights of this world-famous garden city. A social evening in common with many members of the IPA-region Baden Württemberg, the local branch Highway-Police Stuttgart and the American Military-Police finished this travel. Deeply impressed the tourist party returned home to Reutte next day.
