And today, Rio Police took the control of Mangueira favela, closing the circle of Pacification Police around Maracana Stadium and Rio South Zone (touristic area), with the exception of Rocinha favela in Sao Conrado neighbourhood.

With all this measures, Rio dropped its violence numbers in more than 15% this year and Rio people have a better security feel about the city.

For the first time in more than 30 years Rio reached less than 30/10,000 ppl index for homicides.

Also, the city of Sao Paulo will reach this year the 10/10,000 ppl index for homicides, considered low for UN standards. All the southeast region of Brazil (where Rio and Sao Paulo are located) sees a huge decrease on crime in the last 3 years, meanwhile the Northeastern Region (where Salvador and Recife are located) have red signals on crime numbers.

Still, Brazil have a long path to walk on security 'til the big events in near future.

Pacification Police to be set in Rocinha favela (the biggest one in South Zone of Rio) next saturday.

After the first intervention of Police at the entrace of favela today, many criminals tried to escape.

So far, more than 30 people have been arrested trying to escape the favela, between them, the biggest druglord active in Rio a.k.a. Nem.

Nem was arrested trying to escape Rocinha inside a car's trunk.

With Rocinha favela, the pacification ring around South Zone (Copacabana, Sugar Loaf area) will be set.

No favela in this region is controled by druglords anymore and the crime rate in Rio have dropped as never before.

Still there are still work to do. Drug dealers continue to sells drugs with less buzz.
