SÃO PAULO NEW PUBLIC SECURITY POLICY AND PCC CRISIS

SUMMARY

The recent rise in police lethality in São Paulo, alongside internal conflicts within the organized crime syndicate Primeiro Comando da Capital (First Capital Command or PCC), signals a potential shift in the state’s public security landscape. Under the Tarcísio de Freitas (Republican) administration, there has been a significant increase in deaths caused by military police officers, highlighted by operations like Operation Summer, which emphasize direct confrontation and have led to an alarming spike in police violence.

Simultaneously, the PCC’s internal crisis could lead to the emergence of a new faction, destabilizing its territorial control and increasing violence similar to that seen in Rio de Janeiro. São Paulo’s historically lower homicide rates, partially attributed by experts to the PCC’s unified control, are at risk if internal disputes lead to fragmentation. The state’s public security policies must address these emerging threats to prevent a significant rise in crime and violence, ensuring regional stability.
