BRASILIA, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Brazilian government published on Tuesday in the Official Journal a decree creating the Special Secretariat of Security for Major Events, a body that is responsible for the security in events such as 2014 World Cup.

According to Brazilian Justice Minister Jose Eduardo Cardozo, the new secretariat will be responsible for coordinating federal, state and municipal efforts in the field of public safety.

The body is also responsible for security at the 2013 Confederations Cup, but not in Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which remains under the jurisdiction of the Olympic Public Authority.

Under the command of the Federal Police commissioner, Jose Ricardo Botelho, the secretariat will have its own budget and will receive proposals from all the states that will host the 2014 World Cup matches.

Botelho said that the next steps will be the training of security forces, the purchase of equipment and specific technologies.
