Título : Neither Hero nor Villain: The Determinants of Confidence in the UPP Police
Palabras clave : Sociología;UPP;confidence;police;Rio de Janeiro;favelas;pacification
Editorial : Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro
Descripción : In this article we analyze the determinants of confidence in the Police Pacification Units ( Unidades de Polícia Pacificadora UPPs). During their existence (2008-2018), pacification was represented by the media as an institutional hybrid which moved between two extremes. The police were either presented as heroes, whom people wanted to guarantee the end of shootings and ensure security in areas previously marked by violence, or as villains, rejected because of the lethality of their actions and the arbitrariness of how they dealt with people. Taking these representations as ideal types, we sought to identify the determinants of confidence in the police, with the counterpoint being a domiciliary survey carried out between 2014 and 2016 with 2000 residents distributed among twenty pacified favelas in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The results indicated that the respondents had ambiguous sentiments towards the UPP police, mediated by the perception that shootings were part of daily life in these communities and that the pacification had improved security, making the police neither heroes nor villains.
