Security is part of Monaco’s DNA and a key element of what makes the country attractive.
With nearly 600 police officers (one for every 70 residents!) and more than 1,000 video surveillance cameras, Monaco attaches primary importance to the security of its territory. The authorities rely on a constant presence on the ground and a close relationship with the population to guarantee public order.
Security “is the foundation on the basis of which the Principality is able to offer a uniquely attractive proposition to all residents, workers, visitors and people who would like to come and live here,” Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario said recently. Street crime (bag snatching, car theft, burglary, criminal damage, etc.) remains at a very low level, with less than one incident per week in 2021.
