The present work aims to identify the hidden goals and power relationships existing in the UPP Policy, disclosing the domination to which is subjected the population from precarious and fragile organizational spaces, such as slums, especially through the teleological use of Pacification Policy by the Government of Rio de Janeiro. Thus, we have performed a critical discourse analysis of the speeches given in a City Hall event, in honour of the colonel in charge of the pacification police. The analysis revealed a biased prejudicial image that figures in the statements when referred to slum dwellers, affecting the construction of public policies concerning the occupation of such territories, in order to isolate and take the issues of such territory apart from the rest of city.
