According to the Prince's Palace of Monaco website:
A century after Prince Albert I of Monaco organized the first Congress of International Criminal Police Congress, which opened the way to founding Interpol, HSH Prince Albert II wished to hold another meeting of the world's police forces again in Monaco.
Until 7 November, over 1,200 delegates from the 190 Interpol member countries met at the Grimaldi Forum to look back on those 100 years of international police cooperation and discuss the latest developments.
