Malcolm K. Sparrow teaches Regulatory and Enforcement Strategy, and Analytic Methods, at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government. Formerly a Detective Chief Inspector with the British police service, he now specializes in issues of enforcement strategy, regulatory compliance, and risk control--he is the acknowledged national expert on the subject of Health Care Fraud. He is author of The Risk Business: Defining the Regulatory Craft (2000), License to Steal: Why Fraud Plagues America's Health Care System (1996), Imposing Duties: Government's Changing Approach to Compliance (1994); and co-author of B eyond 911: A New Era for Policing (1990) and Ethics in Government: The Moral Challenge for Public Leadership (1990).From Library Journal:
For several years innovative police chiefs have been moving their departments beyond the "reform model"--which stresses respect for constitutional requirements, organizational efficiency, and rapid response time--toward what is usually called "community policing" or "problem oriented policing." In this model they deal with problems at the community level as well as with isolated incidents (911 calls) and routine patrol. Sparrow and coauthors Mark H. Moore and David M. Kennedy, all with the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, offer case studies of individual chiefs followed by discussions of possible changes and improvements in what truly appears to be a new kind of policing. This book is important to police managers wishing to keep up to date in their field and to citizens interested in improving the quality of law enforcement in democracies. Highly recommended for any criminal justice or criminology collection.
