FGV holds public class about the Brazilian police in São Paulo
On Friday, September 6, the Center for Applied Legal Research (CPJA) of FGV's São Paulo Law School (DIREITO GV), Sou da Paz Institute, Conectas Direitos Humanos and the Brazilian Forum of Public Security will hold, in the open area of São Paulo's Art Museum Assis Chateaubriand (MASP), at 7 pm, the public class What Kind of Police Do We Want? - the first activity by the forum with the aim of discussing the situation of the Brazilian police on the streets and in the networks.
São Paulo Law School's director, Oscar Vilhena Vieira, along with the secretary-general of the Brazilian Forum of Public Security, Renato Sérgio de Lima, and the founder of Sou da Paz Institute, Luciana Guimarães, will present the problems, challenges and possible alternatives to get the police closer to citizens and democratic values.
The main ingredient for the existence of a good police force is trust. It is from this trust that the police gets information that allows it to prevent or investigate crimes, says Oscar Vilhena.
The meeting is part of the project The Brazil we want!, which won the support of several FGV schools and units.
