The 2nd International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH2014) will be held at the Free University in the Dutch capital city of Amsterdam from 5 – 8 October 2014.

Policing and public health are both more effective when they are developed and operate in partnership – a critical partnership long in tradition but often neglected in practice. The LEPH Conferences confront this neglect by bringing together police, public health practitioners, academics and policy makers to examine, review, assess, share and learn from each other.

This is a ‘must attend’ conference for anyone in public health or law enforcement concerned with enhancing the effectiveness of their work. Register your interest in receiving further information about LEPH2014 at .

Marketplace of Ideas


The Marketplace of Ideas was developed to provide practical examples of police and health/welfare collaborations at local level, across a wide range of complex social and public health issues - for operational police in particular, whose need is pressing and for practical, more than theoretical, information.
