INFORMATION ON THE PJ - Judicial Police in Portugal

Post  candyfloss on Thu 25 Feb 2016, 9:49 pm

For information here and for those arguing on Cristobell's blog that Goncalo Amaral was not scientifically trained to interpret the dog results and the dna.  See the bit I have bolded in red.  They are very highly trained.




Judicial Police


1. Functions and missions

 The Judicial Police (Policia Judiciaria) is a highly specialized force, both at the technical and scientific levels.

 Its duty is to prevent and investigate crime. Tactically and investigatively autonomous, this force is tasked with collecting evidence and surveilling public places, including ports and airports.

 2. Structure and organization

The Judicial Police reports to the Minister of Justice. Numbering around 1,500 staff, it operates at both the local and national levels. At the local level, it maintains a presence in towns throughout Portugal and liaises with the courts and prosecutors on whose behalf it carries out investigations.

At the national level, it carries out investigations of major crimes, such as subversion, drug trafficking, art thefts, terrorism and murder. The four central directorates which carry out functions at the national level focus on:

  • combating crime;
  • investigating corruption, economic and financial fraud;
  • investigating drug trafficking; and
  • maintaining a central information registry for crime prevention.

Yes, that is correct chirpy - IIRC Goncalo Amaral has a degree in law?
