Brazilian government is preparing a unified command of police forces that will operate in 12 capitals of the country hosting the soccer World Cup 2014.

The proposal was discussed at the Technical Meeting on Public Security, held for five days in Brasilia gathering representatives of security agencies related to the federal government, states and municipalities that will organize the event.

According to the coordinator of the work, Henrique Borri, the proposed model of unified command maintains the autonomy of police institutions, but acts to control incidents in an integrated, rational use of resources and materials.

The unified command center would be located in Brasilia, with regional centers of command and control in the other 11 capitals.

There would also be centers in the stadiums and mobile control centers to provide security in parks and areas of interest of the games.

Borri explained that a document was created defining general and specific responsibilities for each public security organ for 2014 World Cup.
