Report on the effort to collect and enforce financial penalties imposed by the Danish police

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the effort made by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Taxation to collect and enforce financial penalties imposed by the police is satisfactory. Rigsrevisionen examines whether the Ministry of Justice has ensured adequate collection of penalties imposed by the police and whether collection takes place in compliance with current legislation. Rigsrevisionen also examines whether the Ministry of Taxation has ensured adequate enforcement of financial penalties imposed by the police and whether enforcement is complying with current legislation. Last, Rigsrevisionen looks at the effort made by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Taxation to ensure that alternative sanctions such as default fines and conversion of penalties are applied as intended.

It is Rigsrevisionen's assessment that the effort made by the Ministry of Justice to collect and enforce penalties imposed by the police is not satisfactory. It is also Rigsrevisionen's assessment that the effort made by the Ministry of Taxation to enforce the penalties is unsatisfactory. Furthermore, Rigsrevisionen finds that the collaboration between the two departments to ensure enforcement has been ineffective.

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in December 2018.
