Security in Monaco
The Principality has an uncontested image of peace and quality of life. This image is a tangible reality 365 days a year, despite the fact that special events take place all year long and that thousands of visitors and workers come here every day.
To guarantee this quality of life, almost 500 officers of the Police Department and as many video surveillance cameras contribute to this essential facet of common life. A constant presence on the ground, and close contact with the population, enable optimum security levels to be maintained which are never intrusive, guaranteeing respect for persons and property.
This haven of peace did not come about by chance. First of all, it is based on a state of mind shared by all, from the youngest age, ensuring that each person is respected and protected. It is supported at all times by the Prince’s Government, by means of a carefully tailored policy on internal security and civil protection. To achieve this, the Principality has devoted resources to patrolling its territory and protecting institutions, property and individuals.
