It is not uncommon to meet a member of the Princely Family out shopping in Vaduz. The Prime Minister and sports stars also move freely around the Principality and mingle with the citizens in Liechtenstein, one of the safest countries in Europe.
Liechtenstein has been proven to be one of the safest countries in Europe - both at home and out and about. That is reassuring for both the local population and for all those who come to the country each day to visit or work.
Nevertheless, Liechtenstein is not an island. Changing security conditions in Europe pose new challenges to the Principality. As well as security measures taken by the state, guaranteeing the safety of citizens and visitors is a task that can only be realised by many organisations cooperating with each other. Many volunteers, organised in clubs and societies, are responsible for much of this work, with the rest completed by professionals such as the national police, doctors, hospital staff, paramedics, border control officers and for-profit private security companies as well as a host of further institutions.
