Serge Telle, Minister of State, accompanied by Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, stopped by the headquarters of the Public Security Department on Monday evening.
Their visit was timed to correspond to the handover between the day and night shifts.
The Minister of State congratulated the men working under Richard Marangoni, Director of Public Safety, for their exemplary performance during the recent robbery of the Cartier jewellery store. “Even if it’s all over, thanks to you, we can not pretend that nothing has happened,” he said.
He also referred to the future “Public Safety 2020” plan and indicated that new human resources will reinforce the capacities of the Public Security Service with, first of all, during the course of 2017, the creation of nine more posts for police officers, and the implementation of a civilian reserve.
In conclusion, Minister Telle thanked the police officers for their commitment, their work, their seriousness and their rigour. At the end of his visit, the Minister went on to the police station of the Place du Casino, which was in the frontline during the robbery of March 25.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
