In Brazil, the suicide numbers of military police are explosives. The story, published on Agência Pública, was part of a research grant developed by the agency. During seven months, we investigated the data on suicide and mental illness of the military police in the last ten years. The findouts proved that there is a huge problem in the organization which is responsible for protecting the citizens. Our findings shows that police officers with non treated mental illness can reproduce violence during work and that can result in police abuses and even death. In São Paulo, for instance, one military police officer committed suicide every 15 days in the last ten years. All data used in the report were obtained via the Access to Information Act, which forces the goverment to share the data.
