Police numbers strengthened during holiday

Police numbers strengthened during holiday

By Cassandra Tanti - April 14, 2020

Monaco’s police officers will be out in force this Easter holiday period ensuring residents are maintaining strict confinement measures.

These next two weeks technically mark Easter school holidays, a time for families to embrace the outdoors and the beautiful spring sunshine.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus crisis, lockdown measures are in place in Monaco until at least 3rd May.

To ensure people don’t flout the rules, the government has issued a warning to residents, saying police numbers in Monaco will be boosted over the holiday period, adding that “containment measures must be observed more than ever.”

The fire brigade’s drone was also used to make sure people were not gathering in crowds.
