This report examines the implications of the use of performance contracts within the Danish police, with the objective of identifying barriers of efficiency. This is done by consulting the police districts’ performance contracts for 2012. To investigate this, the survey use the principal-agent theory, the transaction cost theory and the theories of employee motivation. The report concludes that the use of performance contracts in the police as governance structure have a number of efficiency pitfalls, including opportun-istic behavior, dysfunctional allocation of resources, increased transaction costs and demotivation of police officers, with lower quality and efficiency as a result.
