One action that will be new is the inspection at the entrance to the megablocks.

Grid structures will be installed so that the inspection can be carried out both at the entrance and on the paths of the so-called megablocks; the goal is to keep out sharp objects, potential weapons and glass bottles.

Aline Torres also informed that the security scheme this year will have reinforcement in policing, both by agents of the Metropolitan Municipal Guard and the Military Police.

“All of this is to be able to plan a very large structure and security so that people can make the most of Carnival”, he said.

Regarding one of the main complaints of those who go to Carnival in São Paulo — the bathrooms —, the City of São Paulo adopted a new method to be able to distribute the chemical bathroom units in another way throughout the city.

Pockets with chemical toilets were created so that shipments to different regions of São Paulo can be made faster. In this way, according to the secretary, the expectation is to reduce about four times the time it would take to take the units to some places in the city. In this way, it will be possible to place clean restrooms for the beginning of some of the parades.
