The taxes of homicides in Brazil are raised between the most of the world:  about fifty  thousand annual   deaths. In some States a significant fall in the annual number occurred in the recent years (São Paulo; Rio de Janeiro e Pernambuco) in others the number increased annually providing in the national total a stabilization in raised platform, annualy superior to the wars as of the Syrian. The biggest falls in the number of homicides occured in the States that had increased the number of prisoners. This work examines the behavior of the historical series of the homicides and the imprisonments searching to identify the existence of some possible correlation. The partial results suggest two strong general correlations and other relevants  informations. A direct correlation, of same direction, with the investments of the National Program of Public Security with Citizenship of the Ministry of Justice (PRONASCI) and another inverse one, of contrary direction, in absolute numbers, enters the taxes of homicides and taxes of imprisonment. It is observed that the jail population and of victims have similar characteristics and there  is not any explanation for absence of adequate politics. The data had been gotten next to the Health Department and National Department of Prisons (DEPEN) of the National Secretariat of Public Security (SENASP).
