There are approximately 600 motor officers of the Brazilian Federal Highway patrol in all Brazil, the number may vary in states depending on the displacement of games and selections.

Groups of motor officers will be escorting the teams and chiefs of state and other representative figures, other groups of motor officers (that are called MOTOPOL) will reinforce security in critical areas nearby the stadiums and highways and also give support to the escorts. Groups can be remobilized , according to demands.

At 600 units in service it is believed that the Brazilian Federal Highway Patrol may be the largest single agency employing Harley-Davidson Police Model Motorcycles
