This study aimed at assessing factors influencing performance in the police force in Mtwara region. Newalla district was selected as a case study. Three specific objectives were developed to accomplish this study; to identify factors affecting performance in an organization; to assess the impacts of TPF performance in a community; and to examine the relationship between motivation and organization performance. Cross-sectional design was used as the study design. Survey was conducted using questionnaire to collect data from 108 respondents. Results indicated that, factors that affect performance of TPF were; leadership supervisory skills, provision of rewards, bonus and incentives, effective implementation of the staff performance goals for appraisal systems, job security, training, promotion, working environment, and recognition. It was also found that, efficiency, effectiveness, and legitimacy of TPF performance was at moderate level in a community. Further, findings suggest that, motivation factors explain 20% of the TPF performance. Rewards, bonus and incentives, and salary and allowances were significant predictors (p<.000) of TPF performance. There was significant relationship between motivation and TPF performance. The study recommends that, the government should make sure work place equipment and barracks accommodations are abundantly available. Workplace equipment and facilities such as office uniforms, patrol cars, field craft weapons handcuffs and body hammers play significant impacts on employee morale in which may affect work productivity. Barrack accommodation is also useful as facilitates mobilization of the police officers in any call of emergency. Keywords: Resources, Job involvement, Motivation & Performance.
