One of the main problems in Brazil’s law enforcement is a lack of integration between police forces and the several agencies that should be fighting crime. Instead of cooperating with one another, these agencies frequently don’t see eye-to-eye – they omit information and don’t cooperate with one another.
The House has now decided to force these agencies into cooperating. At least, that’s the core of a new bill approved by congressmen, called the Unified Public Safety System (SUSP). The project was boycotted by left-wing parties, which deemed the initiative as excessive and futile.
