Abstract

In this paper we analyse the efficiency of the Spanish Police Service using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The analysis concentrates on the police activities related to the solving of crimes. The theoretical and empirical study of the policy production function under this dimension leads us to consider the units analysed as centres which carry out their activities with non-identical technologies and using common inputs.
