Monaco’s police chief for the last three years, Regis Asso, took his leave of the force on Friday, his 60th birthday. Mr Asso has presided over a steady decline in criminality during his term in office, with an overall decrease in offences of 15 percent.

Mr Asso attributed this success to a well-trained and respected police presence in the Principality, with much emphasis placed on high visibility. He also credits Monaco’s extensive and sophisticated video-surveillance system with helping the fight against delinquency.

Mr Asso had held a number of senior posts in the police services in Cannes and Nice before moving to Monaco. His replacement as head of the police force of Monaco is his deputy, Richard Marangoni, a Monegasque.
