Rio de Janeiro was the only state among those analyzed by the Network of Security Observatories that, in two years – from June 2020 to June 2022 -, did not see a drop in the number of police operations. Another conclusion of the analysis was that the number of operations grew 18% in the second quarter of this year, coinciding with the proximity of the elections. For the researchers, this data would indicate that “the number of police actions is sensitive to political contexts and electoral scenarios”. This increase took place despite the existence of a decision by the Federal Supreme Court (STF) determining that the actions be restricted to exceptional cases.

Our analysis:

In Rio de Janeiro, women are seen as easier targets for any type of crime. In addition to suffering from harassment or attempted rapes. It is important to always be vigilant.

  • When walking alone on the street at night, go against the flow of cars. That way, you can better focus on vehicles ahead. If you walk downstream, a car may come from behind, open the door and take you more easily.
  • On the street, do not respond to requests to locate places or to light a cigarette, especially at night. This is a common excuse to approach and surrender the person. Don’t stop, just say you don’t know or don’t have it and leave as soon as possible.
  • When you feel persecuted or in a vulnerable situation, approach the first person you find, tell them what happened and ask for help. Or enter the first establishment open, call someone to pick you up, or leave at the best time. Avoid deserted streets and going out late at night.
  • Always be aware of the people around you. And if you see a suspicious man heading your way, look to see if he looks to the side or behind. Those who have bad intentions don’t want to have witnesses. Don’t hesitate, get out of the way, go back to where you came from or run.
