Babilonia | C. Mangueira

Inaugurated on July 10th, the UPP situated at Babilônia/Chapéu Mangueira communities counts on 100 officers and is ran by Captain Felipe Magalhães dos Reis, who has been working at the Military Police (PM) for 10 years and has four years of experience at the Communitarian Police. The building has three pavements, with a total of eight rooms, where more than 20 police officers can be accommodated on every shift. Chapéu da Mangueira and Babilônia are communities located at Leme, Rio’s South zone, and currently house six thousand people.

From the top of the hill where they are located, one has a privileged view of Rio’s most famous beach, Copacabana.
