Visit to Copacabana Civil Police

The initial visit made to the civil police who police the area of Copacabana was made by Elaine and Adam.  They were warmly received at Copacabana police station.  They were shown around the station and witnessed an arrest taking place whilst there.  They viewed the cell area and interview rooms, this station being a holding station short-term.  A poster on display in the station shows officers from this force killed on duty within the last twelve months.

They were also shown the firearms used by the officers in this force and were allowed to handle them in order to guage their weight.  Officers retain personal guns on and off duty.
