Focussing on socio-political development of the Police force in the Republic of Mozambique (PRM), this paper seeks to examine the circumstances and organizational culture that undergird the motivation and the career development of its officers. I argue that police officer performance can only be considered adequate and professional through a transparent and fair system. The purpose of this paper is to explore and understand the current state of performance evaluation in the PRM and how it can be improved in the future. This research is qualitatively focused on a case study of police officers in Boone and KaMu-bukwana, situated in Maputo Province and Maputo City, respectively. Thus, data collection included anonymous questionnaires and semi-structured inter-views of police officers, police commanders and human resource managers were used. This research is focused on a case study of police officers in Boone and KaMubukwana, situated in Maputo Province and Maputo City, respectively. The results of the research show that in generally the respondents shared negative views on the process of performance evaluation. A majority of respondents did not understand the value of performance evaluation because the results are not used according to the law in Mozambique, particularly the EGFAE and statute of the police.
