'Police 24H': Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
What does it take to protect one of the largest cities in the world?
São Paulo is the world's 7th most populated city with over 11 million people living within city limits and close to 20 million people within the metropolitan area. For this reason, the Military Police of São Paulo patrols the city with the largest state police force in the Brazil, with over 100,000 men and women in its ranks. Just to give you an idea of the magnitude of this police force, NYPD has approximately 35,000 uniformed officers and the NY State Police around 6,500.
Police 24H puts viewers right inside the patrol cars with cops from all areas across São Paulo. There are no scripts or narrators, and it is intense, raw, and unexpected.
Thankfully unexpected sometimes means hilarious, in the form of drunk arrests and delusional criminals. Here are some of those moments from Police 24H with scenes directly from the show. Please picture drunk voices as you read on. It'll only make it better.
