The First International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health – Melbourne, Australia. 11-14 November, 2012
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.
You are invited to participate in The First International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH2012). Be part of this important intersectoral event and part of the process in beginning to close this gap in research, policy, and practice.
