Citizens Police Practice
The Program on the Improvement of Citizen Police Practice (CAPPC) is a continuing education program for the state military police. It has been taught at the facilities of the Military Police of Rio de Janeiro (PMERJ) in partnership with Viva Rio since 2002. Its main directives are to humanize and enhance the quality of the service provided by police, with an emphasis on the prevention of crime and violence. Named Citizen Police Practice (PPC), it is currently in the process of institutionalization as a training course for soldiers.
