General Secretary of Interpol Ronald K Noble made his first visit to Monaco last week.
The aim of the visit was to strengthen the links between Monaco's police force and Interpol that have developed over the last few decades.
The idea for Interpol apparently originated in Monaco. In 1914, Prince Albert I organized the first international congress of police, at which 188 delegates from 24 countries participated. It was from this first meeting that Interpol developed.
