    Default Brazilian SPECIAL OPERATIONS Police Units - Photos and Videos

    Some SPECOPS units from Brazil.

    A quick guide for those who doesn't know, every state in Brazil has two separete police:

    -Policia Civil (does the investigations)

    -Policia Militar (does the patrolling)

    In a national level there's also:

    -Policia Federal

    -Força Nacional de Segurança Publica (gendarmerie like, supports the 'Policia Militar' in states that have too much violence)










    COT - Policia Federal




















    Training



    Selection



    Sniper Training





















    CAOP - Policia Federal























    Operations/Training

    BOPE is probably the most famous unit in Brazil and abroad. There's a movie about it called 'Tropa de Elite' or 'Elite Squad' in english that was a huge success in Brazil. Great movie, if you guys haven't seen it you should definitely check it out.

    Why are some of the BOPE members running with eotechs mounted on top of carry handles?

    Because it's a fixed carry handle.

    interesting, i didnt know about all these federal police sub units...
    for special ops police i think thats it but here in parana theres also GOE (Grupo de Operacoes Especias) from guarda municipal, its a very small group, and also environmental police which is a branch of military police

    Heres some pics i took from last year's parades

    Environmental police: As their name suggests they do missions and operations to seize illegal animal traffiking, illegal deforestation and such things, their training isnt particulary as hard as COE for example, its more survival, tactics techniques oriented but theyre a unit out of common which makes them special.




    Federal Highway Police


    Riot Police (BOPE's subunit "Choque")



    Spec Units assets... last year was the last year they used these old traditional chevys as main patrol vehicles...
    since 2013 they got a contract with renault, mitsubishi, toyota and all units in parana are running on hilux and pajeros. Standard police is using renault duster and fluence

    I plan on posting about COE PMPR later, but Guarda Municipal is kinda lame! heheheh

    I concur on the BOPE movies, they both were awesome.

    question, with units like CORE and BOPE in some regions is there any jurisdictional hold ups?

    Theoretically they have different missions (and in places like Rio de Janeiro there is plenty of action for both), but IMO the concept of having two separete polices is entirely wrong. Besides that they hardly work together and cost double the money for the government with equipment and personnel.

    Great thread thanks guys.

    These guys seem pretty tactical and ready to kick in some doors for an Investigatory branch, can you shed some more light on how these different units do their jobs? The investigation side, are they detectives, or do they field street officers as it seems here, or are they using special units to make entry at dangerous locations in order to do investigations or something completely different?
