Cannes at the origin
Cannes is at the origin of the creation of the Cannes Prestige Security Committee. This was prompted by the Prefectural Authorities of the Alpes Maritimes following the robberies of luxury shops, in particular the Carlton in 2013.

An association representing luxury in Cannes was then contacted with Cannes Prestige.
This association was officially given the organisation of the coordination of information between all the luxury shops in the city of Cannes.
All this in permanent link with the National and Municipal Police of Cannes.

National Police referent
Cannes Sécurité Prestige Association is in constant contact with the National Police referent of Cannes.
He is in charge of receiving information in almost real time from shopkeepers who have been victims of theft or aggression.
But also from shopkeepers who have strong suspicions about individuals who have frequented their shops.
The National Police referent analyses the information received. Then, depending on their relevance, they send them by email as ULD (Urgent Local Dissemination). They include the information (photos, text, video excerpts) to be distributed to all the shopkeepers in Cannes. All the official actors of the Alpes Maritimes department are also recipients.
EXAMPLE OF ULD
Cannes Security Prestige Committee
Urgent local distribution: Red ++ N° 2016/02/04
Cannes, 23rd February 2016.
The individual identified in the PJ has committed a major hotel skulduggery against a Cannes hotel.
He is of German nationality and of very good appearance.
It is not impossible that he will repeat his actions in the region.
Thank you for your cooperation, remain vigilant
This form of preventive communication, given its success, has quickly gone beyond the borders of the Alpes Maritimes.
Committee model taken up
The hexagon and its main cities where luxury is installed are recipients of the DLU (Diffusion Locale Urgente). The principle has seduced and rallied official partners such as the Monegasque, Italian and Swiss police forces, etc.
The Cannes Security Prestige Committee started by informing about what was happening in Cannes.
From now on, it also receives information about the presence of dangerous individuals, on or outside the national territory, likely to be in the city of Cannes.
The network currently includes nearly 200 Cannes businesses that have joined the committee, which is totally and solely dedicated to security issues.
