This research aimed to understand the discourses about the Ronda Ostensivas Tobias de Aguiar (ROTA), focusing on the speech of Police officers and politicians over control the "organized crime." Therefore, we analyzed two recent episodes of "Confrontation" between Police and incriminated subjects (Itatiba - SP in May 2011 and Várzea Paulista - SP, in September 2012) that ended with large numbers of "Suspects" killed. We took this two emblematic cases as a way to cut temporally two distinct periods, before the so-called " public security crisis " apparent normality, and the other period in which the socalled" crisis "occurred, producing increase homicide rate in São Paulo. Documents were analyzed as case of studies, master's workes and professional thesis produced by officers in Polícia Militar do Estado de São Paulo (PMESP), News, newspapers, press officer of the Secretary of Public Security and speaking managers of Public Security. As a significant result, we found that since 2009, the State of São Paulo, there was a direction of PMESP activities in "combat organized crime "that had the support of other sectors of the justice system and state administration, such as the Public Ministry and Secretary of Administration prison that provided information to ROTA, looking for integrated approach against "PCC". The integration between agencies was maintained in relative secrety, while procedures adopted in the "fight agains to organized crime" remained opaque by the whole process, reflecting praticies of a militarized strategy favoring lethality and use of force as means of crime control, and instead of controlling the "violence", he turned out to produce it, especially in the year 2012.
