ROSEMBERG, André. Police picture: a profile of the policemen in São Paulo (1868-1896). História [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.2, pp.95-115. ISSN 1980-4369.

This article presents a profile of the policemen who served in São Paulo police force between 1868 and 1896. Through biographical data - height, age, place of birth, color of skin, prior occupation, family situation - we aimed to identify, on the basis of the hierarchical pyramid, hints about the formation process of São Paulo's police apparatus; to the same one in which we intend to draw a picture of São Paulo's population - poor and male - during a period of crisis on the slavery system, changes in the work force, incorporation of an important foreign contingent and the substitution of the political paradigm in the country.

Keywords : Police; São Paulo; Militarism; Formation of the State.
