Fortaleza Prefecture strengthens law enforcement capacity of Traffic Agents and Municipal Guards

Back to news

In November, GRSP and the Fortaleza Prefecture delivered masterclasses to better understand “Risk Factors and Effective Enforcement” for 50 City Municipality Traffic and Citizenship (AMC) traffic agents and 30 Municipal Guards.

Fortaleza is Brazil’s most densely populated city, with 2.5 million people living within 314,930km, and faces a number of road safety challenges. Through the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety, AMC and GRSP have identified that increasing the capability of the traffic police department, and specifically police officers, will have a dramatic impact on the city’s road safety outcomes.

Participating Traffic Agents and Municipal Guards workshopped ideas and strategies to improve and adapt best practices for road traffic law enforcement to improve traffic safety. Participants gained an in-depth knowledge about key risk factors that contribute to death and serious injuries in a crash. Also discussed was the Safe System approach to managing road users and international best practices of road safety interventions, the need for comprehensive traffic laws, and for reliable data collection on crashes and violations.

The training was conducted by Eduardo Biavati and Luiz Miranda for the Global Road Safety Partnership, with the participation of the Executive Secretary for Conservation and Public Utilities, Luiz Alberto Sabóia, and the superintendent of AMC, Arcelino Lima.

Together we can save millions of lives.
