This dissertation consists of three essays pertaining to policy for enforcement of law. The first essay discusses the optimal policy under the assumption that detection affects the harm caused by a violation and the gain obtained by a violator. The second essay compares the private and public modes of enforcement in a setting where the policy is determined by a democratic vote. The third essay analyzes the desirability of policies that reward prisoners for good behavior under the assumption that individuals may be time inconsistent.
