The city of Presidente Prudente was emancipated from Conceição de Monte Alegre (now Paraguassu Paulista) in the 1910s version of its etymology is that the name is a reference to former Brazilian president Prudente de Morais (Itu, October 4, 1841 - Piracicaba, December 13, 1902), which was a Brazilian lawyer and politician, first governor of the state of São Paulo (1889-1890). With the great economic crisis of 1929, the economy of municipalities linked to coffee production suffered great shock and Presidente Prudente now has new economic activities such as the cultivation of cotton. The industrialization of the city began in the mid-1930s.

In the 1940s it was observed that 44.7% of the usable land in the area was made up of pastures. The increasing importance of cattle ranching in the High Sorocabana region was accomplished when, above all, took the deforestation of areas that were not yet in operation. The correlated industrial activities in the early days of logging, turned to the transformation of raw materials, mainly offered by cattle breeding. The surplus was not consumed in the nucleus, but all sent to São Paulo by rail. In the early 1930s there were seventeen industrial establishments, reaching 138 already in 1940, employing 655 people. What has developed in terms of industry was to complement the agricultural economy, encompassing further its predominance.

The extent of Presidente Prudente was about 15,600 km² at the time of its founding and establishment of the council, and reached its limits, to the north, the watershed of Aguapeí-Peixe; south, the river Paranapanema; east of the Campos Novos Paulista municipalities (formerly Campos Novos do Paranapanema) and Conceição do Monte Alegre and west Paraná river. Changing the territorial-administrative framework of the municipality of Presidente Prudente shows that the municipality reduced, increasingly, its territorial extension, according to the successive dismemberment. In 1960, however, it is replaced by the configuration that keeps up to date, with an area of ​​562 km². That its territorial expansion process, the city gradually absorbed the countryside. The predominance of rural areas has been and is being replaced by urban, to meet the requirements of the expansion of the city, given the increase in productive activities in the city (industry, trade and services) and increased housing demand generated by population density. The boundary between the countryside and the city is no longer visible.

Stay safe[edit]

Prudente is like other cities in Brazil, there are points of greatest risk, safer ones. The city does not have pockets of poverty, and slums in uneven areas. There are so poor neighborhoods, distant and more prone to drug trafficking and crimes, but the city, luckily and public security actions, does not have major points of intorpecentes consumption. However the locals consider the relatively quiet town.

The region has received in recent years a lot of prisons, especially after the closure of the Carandiru Prison in the capital. Over the years the city became an important center for monitoring and Civil Police Military Intelligence and the State of São Paulo, since the major heads of criminal organizations are in Region prisons.

The traveler should be aware in remote places, especially at night. Stay in well-lit and busy places. Avoid walking after 23:00 on weekdays, in Downtown and Parque do Povo area. Use only in case of necessity the public toilets in the evening Parque do Povo, as these sites become places of prostitution and drug users. Another point to be avoided is the region comprising the Bus Station and Urban Terminal as it is a place of prostitution and customarily occur armed robbery.

Taking the necessary precautions tourists will always be safe in the city. If you need to contact the local police for points-to-face and telephone service in addition to the '190' of the PM.
