The Index of Confidence in Justice (ICJBrasil), carried out by the Center for Applied Legal Research (CPJA) of São Paulo Law School (DIREITO GV), points out that 70.1% of the population does not trust the work of the various police forces in the Country. The ICJBrasil seeks to systematically portray, for each quarter, people's trust in the Judiciary Power - 1,650 people are interviewed every three months in eight states: Amazonas, Bahia, Pernambuco, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul and Distrito Federal.

The data were presented at the 7th edition of the Brazilian Yearbook of Public Security of the Brazilian Forum of Public Security (FBSP), and show that the dissatisfaction with the police increased by 8.6% between the first half of 2012 and the first half of 2013.

The states where the respondents are less satisfied with the Military Police are the Federal District and Pernambuco, with only 27% of approval. Regarding the Civil Police, Pernambuco also stands out with a low index of satisfaction - only 25%. Also according to the study, the credibility of the police is closer to the political parties than to the Armed Forces - institution that the population sees as more reliable, with 34.6% of rejection. It is worth noting that 95.1% of Brazilians say that they do not rely on political legends.

ICJBrasil is coordinated by Professor Luciana Gross Cunha, with researchers Luciana de Oliveira Ramos and Gabriel Hideo Sakai de Macedo - both of São Paulo Law School, in addition to Fabiana Luci Oliveira (FS/UFSCAR), Rodrigo de Losso Silveira Bueno (FEA/USP) and Joelson Oliveira Sampaio (FEA/USP and FGV).
