Protecta’s commercial coordinator, Leonardo Benício Pinheiro, will give a talk on “Technology & Security”. The presentation will take place on Thursday 16th at 11am at the Hangar. “We’re going to talk about how these two pillars of Technology and Security are important and connect to guarantee the individual protection of the professionals responsible for our security and who are on the streets every day. And this is Protecta’s focus: producing with high technology so that the products are suitable for any need,” said Leonardo Benício.

This is only possible with a trained team focused on saving lives,” said Victor Gallo, CEO of Protecta.
Note: In Brazil – In Brazil, the State Military Police are the 27 public security forces whose function is to police and preserve public order, through the activity of ostensive policing, a function expanded by the Federal Constitution of 1988, surpassing the previous one with ostensive policing, within the scope of the states and the Federal District. They are administratively subordinate to the governors, are auxiliary and reserve forces of the Brazilian Army, and are part of the country’s public security system, reporting to the State Secretariats for Public Security at an operational level. They are funded by each member state and, in the case of the Federal District, by the Federal Government. The name “Military Police” was only standardized in 1946 under the Getúlio Vargas regime, with the new 1946 Constitution after the Estado Novo dictatorship (1937-1945). All federal units adopted the term, with the exception of Rio Grande do Sul, which to this day retains the name Brigada Militar for its police force.
