The police stations located in Pinheiros and Perdizes, wealthy neighborhoods in the west zone of São Paulo, registered a record in theft and theft, respectively, in the first five months of 2023. In addition to the two regions, police districts covering areas such as Itaim Bibi, Vila Olímpia, Moema, Campo Belo and Jardins also saw their records of crimes increase in 2023. A police chief said that there is a lack of police to investigate members of gangs specializing in attacking pedestrians and drivers, which results in more criminals on the streets. For him, there will only be an improvement in the scenario with the increase in the number of employees in the Civil Police, responsible for investigating crimes.
