Campo Grande (MS) – The third edition of the SULMaSSP Integrated Operation began on October 20th, in Mato Grosso do Sul, which aims to carry out overt, preventive and repressive policing, integrating the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and the Military Brigade of Rio Grande do Sul.
The bloc’s aim is to expand and strengthen the repression of cross-border and/or transnational crimes across state borders in the area of participating states, through effective operational and intelligence integration.
The operation takes place simultaneously in the states that make up the bloc and, knowing that Mato Grosso do Sul is susceptible to the action of criminal groups due to its strategic position, given the territorial border with other states of the federation and the countries Paraguay and Bolivia , it was necessary to host this edition.
Military police forces from members of the SULMaSSP block are present in Mato Grosso do Sul, traveling along the state’s highways and carrying out joint actions that prioritize confronting criminal groups in the fight against cross-border and/or transnational crimes, such as drug trafficking, smuggling, embezzlement, currency evasion, money laundering, arms trafficking, among others.
Furthermore, due to its productive profile, the State has a large volume of machinery, equipment, products, animals and agricultural inputs that arouse the greed of criminals. The operation also brings together efforts to combat crimes in rural areas, which mainly affect agribusiness, such as abigeato and theft and theft of fertilizers, pesticides, machinery, fertilizers, which cause losses to rural producers.
This Friday (10/11), Campo Grande, capital of the State, will host the “D-Day” ceremony, with the presence of military personnel from participating states, as well as civil and military authorities, in an event in the Yotedy Buffet parking lot, at 9 am (MS time), ending the third edition of the SULMaSSP Integrated Operation.
