Jack Maple

Biography: Jack Maple grew up in Richmond Hill, NY off the corner of Forest Park on 108th Street and Park Lane South and would later become known as a larger-than-life crimebuster for the city of New York.

He worked his way up the ranks from a transit cop to an undercover detective patrolling Times Square and the 42nd Street train station at 8th Avenue, and finally becoming a deputy police commissioner in Mayor Guiliani's administration. Maple developed the crime strategy program known as COMPSTAT, in which he and then-Chief of Patrol Louis Anemone grilled top police officials on their borough or precinct crime strategies. The COMPSTAT program revolutionized the department and became a symbol of police accountability. He also wrote the 1999 book "The Crime Fighter: Putting the Bad Guys Out of Business," with journalist Chris Mitchell.

In 1991, there were more than 2,200 murders in New York, and everyone -- pols, sociologists, urban experts -- was ready to throw in the towel. But not Maple. He sat at his table along the wall in Elaine's and talked about how he could cut crime in half. It was a preposterous barroom boast -- and he made it happen.

In a mere 27 months as New York's deputy police commissioner for crime-control strategies, he obliterated decades of accepted wisdom about police work, crime fighting, and responsible government. His Compstat process, which brought accountability to the NYPD, is now used by more than a third of the country's big-city police departments.

Maple's extraordinary success was a triumph of the eccentric over the conventional. But he was an iconoclast in ways far more important than his foppish dress. He challenged the way things were done. He questioned procedures. He was perhaps the most creative cop in history.

Not bad for a high school dropout who called himself a crookologist.
