Author: José Vicente da Silva | November 1998

This paper attempts to analyze deficiencies in the structure and operation of the São Paulo police which are contributing factors, similar to other state police, to increased crime. Causes of crime are briefly touched upon, as the emphasis is on analysis of the police system’s operating conditions that can prevent crime more effectively. At the end are proposed strategies for improving police performance and coordination of efforts to reduce violence.
