Monaco Post mark the 120th anniversary of the Police Department on a new stamp featuring the official Monegasque police helmet.
The Police Department is responsible for maintaining public order and ensuring the security of people and property.
To mark 120 years since it was established (1902–1922) by Prince Albert I, an event which will be commemorated throughout the year, the Department wanted to issue a stamp.
The Monegasque police helmet is the most iconic symbol of a police officer in uniform. The Sovereign Prince’s monogram capped with a crown emphasises the Police Department’s commitment to the Prince.
