SIRIMARCO, Mariana. A "família policial": vinculações e implicações entre relato e instituição. Mana [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.3, pp.559-580. ISSN 0104-9313.

"Police family" is a category strongly rooted in the police institution. It alludes, first of all, to the kinship networks of each police officer, but it also operates in a different, more metaphorical, sense, tying its members to the institution as a whole. This article is based on these usages and meanings of the "police family", which refer to a discursive model liable to configure a determinate institutional history. Why does the police force choose, in some situations, to speak of itself as a "family"? What logic, sense or identities can be constructed through kinship relations? Accounting for these questions is a way to further our recognition of the importance of the narrative through which a specific institution is constructed.
