Policing, environmental protection, and tax administration have
much more in common than practitioners in these areas often
recognize. Their cultures and traditions have, for the past few
decades, incorporated a classic enforcement mentality, based on the
underlying assumption that a ruthless and efficient investigative
and enforcement capability would produce compliance through the
mechanisms of deterrence. In these fields, and perhaps in many
other enforcement or compliance oriented professions, Sparrow
believes the traditional enforcement approach is under stress.
There are too many violators, too many laws to be enforced, and not
enough resources to get the job done.
In this book, Sparrow draws out remarkable parallels in the ways
these professions are adapting to meet their current challenges, as
they reject their traditional reliance on retrospective,
case-by-case, after-the-fact enforcement. Rather than perpetuating
their dependence on processes, procedures, and coverage, these
professions are each developing new capacities for analyzing
important patterns of noncompliance, prioritizing risks, and
designing intelligent interventions using a much broader range of
tools. Sparrow extracts the essence of the transformations
underway, explores the critical implications for information
management, and lays out the issues that need resolution before the
emerging compliance strategies can reach maturity. This book is
required reading for all those concerned with either the theory or
the practice of the compliance side of government.
