RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - SEPTEMBER 18: A member of the UPP, Units of Pacifying Police, stands on a hill overlooking a favela called Complex Alemao, on September 18, 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. These police are one of the improvements the government has made to make life better for those living in impoverished areas. The police try to stamp out crime and get rid of the drug lords who control many areas. Favelas are informal settlements, traditionally without electricity, water and sewage services.
