Civil Policeman walking side by side with a garbage collection truck – that has a large Rio de Janeiro Prefecture logo on the side.
Walking on the back of a carnival bloco, making sure order is being kept at all times, here is another example of someone working while others are partying on the streets.
The civil guard can be identified by the beige color of their uniform; unlike the military police, they do not carry fire weapons. The guards are armed with non-lethal weapons and report to the Prefecture (city) of Rio de Janeiro. While the military police reports to the state of Rio de Janeiro.
