The municipality will also, together with the National Public Security Secretariat and the Federal Police, evaluate the results of the studies. Each project will be able to carry out the research in four years, extendable for another year. The initiative is aimed at public, federal and state universities, and private institutions.
For the production of the theses, CAPES will offer the Portal of Periodicals. The virtual library has more than 48 thousand publications. Public security institutions and official criminal expertise units, on the other hand, will allow researchers to have access, for example, to statistical data from the agency and to physical laboratories already used during police activities.
