Abstract

Performance-related pay policies applied to the Police have been implemented in Brazil and Latin America since the 2000s in an attempt to reduce the main violent crime indicators. The Integrated Targets System (Sistema Integrado de Metas - SIM), the Pacifying Police Units (Unidades de Polícia Pacificadora - UPP) and the Additional Service Regime (Regime Adicional de Serviço - RAS), initiated in the state of Rio de Janeiro in 2009, sought to reduce “strategic state crime indicators” whose results are monitored by the civil police report data. In order to understand how these policies have been implemented in the state of Rio de Janeiro between 2007 and 2017, the study adopts a quantitative approach upon criminal analysis and a qualitative one based on interviews and field observation at civil police stations and military police battalions.

Las políticas salariales relacionadas con la gestión por desempeño aplicadas a la policía se han implementado en Brasil y América Latina desde la década de 2000, en un intento por reducir los principales indicadores de delitos violentos. El Sistema Integrado de Metas (SIM), las Unidades de Policía Pacificadora (UPP) y el Régimen de Servicios Adicionales (RAS), iniciados en el estado de Río de Janeiro en 2009, han buscado reducir los “indicadores estratégicos de crímenes” (IEC), cuyos resultados se monitorean por datos reportados a la Policía Civil. Para comprender cómo se implementaron estas políticas en el estado de Río de Janeiro entre 2007 y 2017, el estudio adopta un enfoque cuantitativo de análisis criminal y uno cualitativo basado en entrevistas y observaciones de campo en comisarías de la Policía Civil y batallones de la Policía Militar.
