Report no. 8/2020

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Justice, to a satisfactory degree, has ensured that the police have improved their performance in relation to making charges for burglary from 2016 to 2019.  The report answers the following questions: 

  • Have the police improved their performance in relation to burglaries?
  • Have the police improved their efficiency in relation to making charges for burglary?
  • Have the police improved certain aspects of their investigations into burglary? 

It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the Ministry of Justice has not to a satisfactory extent ensured that the police have improved their performance in relation to making charges for burglary. The consequence is that fewer citizens experience that burglaries in their homes are solved. 

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in December 2019.
