This study investigates the relationship between police motivating factors' and the crime rate in Nigeria. The fixed effect panel data model with geopolitical zones and states as dummy variables results indicated the significance of motivating factors aside from logistics and insurance with multiple R-squared values of 76.65%. The random effect panel data model showed every motivating factor was significant with multiple R-squared values of 53.81%. Therefore, based on multiple R squared values, the fixed effect panel data model explained the variations in crime rate better—random effect study. Conclusively, police motivating factors have a significant impact on the crime rate in Nigeria.
