2nd International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH2014)
This conference, organised jointly by the Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health and the Talma Institute for the Study of Work, Care and Welfare, will discuss the link between law enforcement and public health.5 Oct 2014 to 8 Oct 2014 | Amsterdam, Netherlands
Law enforcement, especially through the activities of police forces, has a crucial but largely unacknowledged role in the protection and promotion of public health. While police are key partners in many specific public health programs, their identity as an important part of the public health endeavour is rarely recognised. This means that there is a generally inadequate approach to research and investigation of ways in which law enforcement, especially police, can be most effectively engaged and be most effective in carrying out their public health role.
The First International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH2012) that took place in November 2012 aimed to discuss and explore this intersection and to close this gap in research, policy, and practice.
The Conference themes included a wide range of complex social issues, with health and social order characteristics, where law enforcement, and particularly police, have a critical role to play, and the partnership with public health is of key importance.
The Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health and the Talma Institute for the Study of Work, Care and Welfare, will organise in 2014 the second international conference on law enforcement and public health (LEPH2014).
