Den uafhængige politiklagemyndigheds etablering og udfordringer In this project we will examine what reasons were behind the creation off The Danish Independent Police Complaints Authority(DCAP) and whether the authority is truly independent. With base in relevant theorists, interview subjects and statistics, our analysis shows the following: DCAP were established to increase the legitimacy with the citizens, and recognize citizens in the domain of legal relations. Later we question whether DCAP lives up to the ideal type of how an independent organization should be. A majority of the employees in the DCAP have past experience from the police. On top of that the DCAP doesn’t have the authority to prosecute, but arte dependent on the state attorney decision on whether to prosecute or not. These factors weakens DCAPs independence, but DCAP have the option to investigate and criticize, which makes the point that DCAP is somewhat independent. This leads us to examine what kind of authority DCAP to be able to act more independent, the right to prosecute would be an obvious answer. Furthermore we discuss what the polices task is, to determine if there even is a need for an independent authority to control law enforcement. In conclusion we discuss what tools can be used to get more evidence, to avoid the fact that so many complaints remain unresolved.
