1st International conference on law enforcement and public health

 

Overview

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 generally 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 conference is an important step in beginning to close this gap in research, policy, and practice.

The themes for the conference will include a wide range of public health areas where law enforcement, and particularly police, have a critical role to play.
