Carnival of the neighborhoods

Carnival in Salvador will have programming in eight neighborhoods, in addition to the three official circuits – Dodô, Osmar and Batatinha. The names of the artists who will animate Liberdade, Periperi, Piatã, Pau da Lima, Plataforma, Boca do Rio, Itapuã and Cajazeiras have already been released by the city hall of the capital of Bahia.

Check schedule here.


Forty-two Approach Portals, operating 24 hours a day, supported by Facial Recognition, will be used by the folder. The equipment will be installed at the accesses to the Dodô (Barra), Osmar (Campo Grande) and Batatinha (Pelourinho) circuits.

In the equipment, police officers will use metal detectors preventing the entry of firearms and sharp objects into the party. Backpacks, purses and bags will receive special attention in magazines.

Monitoring the party, the SSP will use 300 mobile and fixed cameras to monitor suspicious movements and also look for fugitives from justice. In 2019, the first year of use, the technology found a murderer, who was dressed as a woman.

Acting in conjunction with technology, around 30,000 police and firefighters will be employed. In total, the State Government will invest around 70 million reais in Public Security.


Access control for cars and motorcycles to restricted circulation areas will be through electronic radars. The equipment will be installed in 15 portals that will be located at the main points of entry and exit of the neighborhoods of the official circuits.

Signs will be positioned on the gates, generating visual information for each driver, indicating whether or not he has permission to transit. When an accredited vehicle passes through the portico, a green light will be activated next to the word “ok”. If you are not accredited, a red light will turn on with the sign showing “not ok” next to it.

The portals will also transmit to a Transalvador platform, in real time, information on vehicle circulation. These systems are capable of evaluating, together with other mobility equipment, traffic conditions, enabling strategies to mitigate traffic problems at specific times.

Only those who have the credentials, which were issued free of charge by Transalvador, can regularly pass through the portals. The stickers, delivered to residents and service providers, contain the vehicle’s license plate, which makes it impossible to sell these identification instruments illegally.
