The DataCrime tool, developed by FGV’s Department of Public Policy Analysis (DAPP), was the winner of the Brazil Design Award in the Digital Design category. The award, organized by the Brazilian Association of Design Enterprises, aims to acknowledge and highlight the creative and innovative capacity of design in the domestic economy.

Created by DAPP researchers in partnership with the Café.art design studio, the DataCrime platform offers a panorama of public safety in the country, based on analyses and official numbers published by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), the Unified Healthcare System (SUS), National Corrections Department and Brazilian Public Safety Yearbook. The data presented in a didactic and interactive interface address the occurrence of crime, fatalities, security agent staff and penitentiary structure. The goal is to facilitate access to information and alert to bottlenecks in the sector from national and regional perspectives.

The awards ceremony, held on the November 22, featured design professionals and companies, as well as entities and professionals who contribute to the promotion of national design. In all, 10 categories and 78 subcategories were awarded, evaluated by 100 experts from all over Brazil.
