This study is an assessment of the way welfare can be a motivation factor towards the employees’ performance. The study targeted the Police Forces in Uganda and specifically the Kampala Metropolitan areas. The findings of the study indicate that welfare acts as an inducing factor towards the members of the police force as per their day today performance. The reasons as to why some officers could opt for other professions are that they were somewhat dissatisfied with the forces’ poor living conditions, less remuneration, job insecurity among others. The study recommends that a good welfare as a motivation factor is of high importance in any profession and that the following should be done: improvement of the general welfare of the Working Force, provisions of good social amenities, proper induction of the Officers when promoted, job security to be provided, insurance of the Police Officers, increment in the remuneration, avoidance of political bickering among other.
