Abstract

Cites, in an inset, the ‘Workout’ US system which O’Sullivan brought into Eagle Star, and which was a resounding success. Describes how 3,000 staff (40%) have participated (some more than once!) in the change process.

Abstract

Purpose

A neighborhood‐based notion of the distribution of policing services is a hallmark of community policing philosophy. The purpose of this research is to focus on two policy issues: are there significant differences in important policing issues among the different communities, and what factors within the Sheriff's control might account for these differences?

Design/methodology/approach

In 2002, the Ada County Sheriff's Office (ACSO), servicing the area around Boise, Idaho, carried out a survey of citizens stratified across four areas: two contract communities, one non‐contract community, and the unincorporated remainder of the county.

Findings

The survey found significant variation in perceptions of crime and disorder, in perceptions of safety, in social cohesion, and in attitudes toward deputies and to the sheriffs office. Findings suggested the importance of local policy through the tailoring of services to local needs. However, some community factors appeared to provide limits on the extent to which the police could respond to dissatisfaction with their services, regardless of adaptive strategy.

Originality/value

Only limited empirical research has studied neighborhood variation in citizens' perceptions of differences pertinent to policing services, and virtually no such research has been carried out outside urban areas. This research fills this gap.

Abstract

Discusses the issue of damages in the Court of Appeal decision in Banque Bruxelles Lambert SA v. Eagle Star Insurance [1995]. Suggests that policy issues, whether or not made explicit, must inevitably be considered in reaching a conclusion as to which party ought to be liable for damages for economic loss due to a fall in the property market. To do otherwise is to risk making the valuer the insurer of all of the client’s risks.

Abstract

Examines the phenomenon of cross‐border property lending and some issues regarding lending procedures and decision‐making processes in the context of the relationship between lender and professional adviser. Commences by placing these procedures and processes in the context of the development of cross‐border European property investment and finance. The UK has been a popular destination for overseas investors and lenders over the last decade and is therefore used as a case study to examine the additional institutional risk that overseas lenders may face when operating outside of their own country and obtaining advice from home professionals. The research identified a lack of clarity in roles and relationships between lender and adviser, difficulties in communications both internally and between overseas branches and headquarters and failures in provision and interpretation of advice. Concludes by identifying the issues which may need to be addressed generally by lenders and their advisers, when lenders are operating in overseas markets.

Abstract

The ABI code of practice for the selling of general insurance was first introduced in 1981 and has been refined over the years to meet the needs of consumers. It seeks to reflect the controls exercised over insurance brokers by virtue of the Insurance Brokers (Registration) Act 1977 and related regulations. It applies to all non‐registered intermediaries and employees of insurance companies. In 1994 the ABI introduced a number of improvements to address key areas of compliance, awareness and consumer recourse. The purpose of this paper is to examine the selling process involved at the new business, mid‐term adjustment, renewal stages of a general personal lines policy cycle and to propose strategies to ensure compliance with the ABI code. It considers options for monitoring and the importance of enforcement.
