When you relocate to the Principality, it can be a very positive advantage for you that Monaco enjoys extraordinary security. With its over five-hundred police officers in 1.98 km², Monaco has the largest police presence in the world on both a per-capita and per- area basis. Not to mention, Monaco has more than 520 surveillance cameras.

First, it might seem weird to see a police officer in almost every direction, but it provides a great feeling of safety. In Germany, when you need a police officer, you call the central phone line and have to wait until they send someone, while in Monaco they are there without hesitation if the situation requires it.

You can also notice the police presence as well as the surveillance cameras on every corner of the street. They all send a message that the security is under control, protecting you and your loved ones.

Obviously, this protection is not limited to criminal activities. The Principality offers all human and technological resources for general surveillance of its territory to protect both objects and people at the same time.

The Principality of Monaco is very protective of its residents. For example, without a police interview, you cannot even apply for a residence permit. The constant protection has developed a way of thinking as well, which is shared by many people from the past. This is the care and respect for others and other’s properties.

It is the same with the commercial ventures and business entities. Monaco carefully protects its circles, and there are times when money and wealth become secondary.

Even if you believe you can buy the rules with your wealth, you will face the reality that you have to adopt and respect the rules of the Principality. It is a very protective environment.
