    Assessment of the impact of the use of body cameras by the military police of the state of São Paulo
    (This is a video promoted by FGV Research Network, 2022-08) Monteiro, Joana
    Police forces have a legitimate monopoly on the use of force in Brazil, which must be used in the preservation of the public interest and always with respect for human dignity. In the last years, the Military Police of the State of Sao Paulo (PMESP) has introduced a series of initiatives aimed at reducing the disproportionate use of the police force, in particular the use of body cameras, a technology that is increasingly being used in other countries. However, there is still little scientific evidence on the impact of the use of body cameras, especially within the institutional framework and in the context of Latin American countries that have higher rates of crime and violence. The project objective is to assess the impact of the use of body cameras by the PMESP on indicators of use of force, perception of safety and criminality. To this end, a quasi-experiment will be conducted, where police companies selected to use the cameras during the initial phase of the program will be paired with similar companies that have not yet received the cameras. Preliminary results indicate that this technology plays a key role in reducing police lethality. Additionally, the project foresees the analysis of initiatives that constitute the Program for Reduction of Force Use of the Military Police of the State of Sao Paulo that complement the technological innovation introduced by body cameras. In particular, protocols for supervising and reviewing camera images that enhance the effects of using cameras on police uniforms will be documented. This is a video promoted by FGV Research Network
