The future of crime control



The ways in which non-governmental institutions may contribute to law enforcement are discussed. Issues include delegation of authority, citizen responsibility, record-keeping and disclosure, cooperation with private interests, incentives, contracting out, accountability, market failure, conflict of interest, transformation of social relations, erosion of civic commitment, and lack of policy coherence. (An expanded version of this paper appears in Transnational crime : a new security threat?, edited by John Ciccarelli, Australian Defence Studies Centre, 1996).
