Presentation of the New Quality of Life Preservation Unit (U.P.C.V.)
Yesterday, Mr. Patrice Cellario, Minister of Interior, gave a presentation to the Press on the new Quality of Life Preservation Unit (U.P.C.V.), which is comprised of 10 police officers (7 men and 3 women), under the command of a senior officer.
This unit is attached to the Proximity and Security Section (S.P.S.). The officers chosen are all very experienced and have a knowledge of point duty, so as to increase the efficiency of this unit. To ensure optimal responsiveness and reduce travel time, the police officers in this Unit are equipped with electric bicycles.
The main role of this Unit is to protect and improve the quality of life of the Principality's residents. It also has a particular focus on ensuring that traffic flows smoothly and on combating all types of noise pollution and incivility.
The U.P.C.V. will also be involved in the fight against the illegal dumping of waste by individuals and companies that do not comply with the relevant regulations.
Thanks to remote means of surveillance and joint analyses in real time by the Police Department's Monitoring and Operational Command Centre (C.S.C.O.) and the Integrated Mobility Management Centre (C.I.G.M.), members of the U.P.C.V. will be able to travel around quickly in the field in order to intervene when necessary.
