With the model proposed by the Unified Public Security System (Susp), created by a law sanctioned by President Michel Temer on Monday (11 June), the Brazilian government can formulate integrated security policies in coordination with the states. For Public Security Minister Raul Jungmann, the Susp will act as a "negotiating space" between the federal government and local executives. "This is the efficient, competent and adequate response of the Brazilian State to face violence," the minister said at a press conference after the signing ceremony of the law that establishes the system.
