Session summary This session will provide an overview of the introduction of multi-agency Sexual Abuse Referral Centres in England and Wales. It will consider the process of setting up such centres and offer an insight into how sexual violence support services function and work together with examples from the UK and the Netherlands. The aim of the session is to shed light on the interrelations between law enforcement and public health with respect to undocumented migrants in the Netherlands, bringing together the perspectives of different professionals. This session will discuss issues related to the delivery of police custody (mental) health care in Amsterdam and in the UK, including the role of the police in the identification of (mental) health problems in detainees and the advantages and disadvantages of systematic screening in police custody

Alcohol is deeply integrated into Australian culture, and is becoming widely recognised as a major cause of public health and safety issues. This session will examine a variety of collaborative approaches to minimizing the harms associated with alcohol consumption in Australia Police partnerships in promoting health and security are formed in many widely differing circumstances. As part of the LEPH conferences' ongoing examination of the underlying principles of successful partnerships, this session will showcase a range of such partnerships 11.15 – 11.55

Session summary This session will discuss how health, civil society organizations (CSO) and community based organizations (CBO) can build critical and positive partnerships with police to enhance service provision for vulnerable populations. The session will draw on lessons learned from UNODC’s recent work in building partnerships between police, HIV programmes and CSOs in countries with concentrated epidemics among people who inject drugs and also benefit from the experience of the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) and the Law Enforcement and HIV Network (LEAHN).  What are the implications for the organizational design of the state and for the roles of professionals in formerly separate policy domains?
What are the societal effects of social policing, both in terms of effectiveness and in terms of normative issues? Can we have ’too much’ prevention?
The Top600 is Amsterdam’s integrated approach to its 600 most notorious (young) repeat offenders of high impact crime. The program has raised the collaboration between health care, youth care, law enforcement and public services to a whole new level.

In this Q&A session the Program's general manager together with a psychiatrist from the Municipal Health Service and a senior researcher from the Police will go through the mechanics of the Top600, it's imminent expansion into new responsibilities and they will answer audience questions about the program
The health and law enforcement partnership is complex and multifaceted. This session presents a further variety of such partnerships and interactions in a diverse range of settings Nowhere is the law enforcement nexus with public health so apparent or important as in the area of illicit drugs. Law enforcement has a role from protection of health in the manufacturing process, to regulation of use and minimization of harm; but the right balance is inevitably contentious. This session examines different aspects of the balance 3.45 – 4.25

Prevention of opioid overdose fatalities: a collaboration of law enforcement, public health and harm reduction

Opioid overdose is the leading cause of preventable drug related deaths. Law enforcement/public safety officers are often first on the scene. New York State has developed a collaboration between law enforcement officials, public health, emergency medical services, substance abuse services and harm reduction to train police officers on the use of naloxone in preventing fatalities. The session will introduce the training as well as the evolving results.

Session title The LEPH Debate
Location Aula
Chair Prof Joachim Kersten, Deutschen Hochschule der Polizei (Münster Police University), Münster, Germany
Topic How wide or narrow should the police's remit be?

The police job is to intervene in “every kind of emergency”. Police are involved in various crime fighting, order maintenance and social service functions. And police officers often take the lead in dealing with a wide range of non-crime problems, including public health issues, school discipline and immigration. But does a wide remit stretch the front-line and unnecessarily criminalise non-crime issues? Or does the police’s commitment to public safety carry an implicit oblig​ation to also tackle wider social and public health concerns?

Session summary The fundamental basis of effective partnerships is transparency. In the case of partnerships between law enforcement and public health, this requires the sharing of relevant information between the partners. In this realm, this information sharing is often problematic, for reasons of privacy, confidentiality and operational security. This session presents attempts to overcome these barriers to the benefit of both sectors This session will describe key-points from the prison aftercare program in the Netherlands including findings from the 17UP study. This session will highlight the latest insights on specific needs of former detainees in the Netherlands and how these needs are met. The session will highlight a number of innovative approaches currently taken towards preventing child sexual abuse in the UK, in addition to reporting the results of a recently published (May 2014) independent evaluation of the “Stop it Now!” Helplines. These Helplines, which operate in both the UK and the Netherlands, are based upon a public health approach to tackling child sexual abuse. The session will also highlight key points to consider when developing or planning to introduce something similar in a particular nation or cultural context. Until now, in the historiography on the heroin epidemic in the Netherlands more attention has been paid to the local government and public health services than to the police. Disclosing the origins of the contacts, cooperation and mutual influence between the justice system and mental health care will be instructive for the present. The partnership between law enforcement and public health is at its most critical and challenging in the realm of mental health. This session explores a range of efforts to ensure the partnership is effective and maximises security and safety for those with mental health issues which bring them into the view of law enforcement.

The Early Intervention Pilot Program, Tasmania, Australia: public health lessons from the field


The Australian National Strategy against Binge Drinking is a national response to binge drinking amongst youth. The Tasmanian Early Intervention Pilot Program (TEIPP) started in 2010. This presentation outlines the impact of the initiative to date and asks the question whether inter-organisational ties can be better portrayed to the public to increase public awareness of the scheme and prevention of youth binge drinking.

Session summary Marginalisation creates multiple occasions for interaction with police and other law enforcement. NGOs working with marginalised communities are challenged with developing and maintaining effective working relationships with police for mutual benefit. In this session, a range of local NGOs and police working in a diverse variety of settings with different communities reflect on their experience of building such relationships. Law enforcement activities in the area of drug control have often been counterproductive in relation to improving public health outcomes for communities. This session will give an overview of the ‘Modernising Drug Law Enforcement’ project and bring experiences from European and North American jurisdictions to highlight new approaches in law enforcement strategy in terms of better health and human rights outcomes for people who use drugs and their communities. The public health implications of ethnic profiling are clear: from the use of mental and health care services by those experiencing profiling to the lack of community engagement with law enforcement and other social services, and the societal impacts of civil unrest. Police forces in many countries are implementing systems to address ethnic profiling and improve engagement with communities. This session will showcase the work of OSJI and partner police agencies in developing good practices for addressing ethnic profiling. From three large scale longitudinal empirical studies on mental health care problems among Dutch, mental health care problems and care utilization of Dutch male prisoners during imprisonment are described, and the question addressed: to what extent are mental health problems imported to prison and how are these problems affected by imprisonment? A third presentation focuses on those who are detained in the special care units for Dutch prisoners with severe psychiatric disorders, and for contrast, a view of the relationship of lived experience in a U.S. prison to life after prison. This session showcases diverse programs and approaches for training of police in aspects of dealing with public health issues and partnerships. 4.00 – 4.40

Session summary The Law Enforcement and HIV Network (LEAHN) Country Focal Points (CFPs) are police who are building the network and relationships with civil society in their own country. They will present country views of their work and progress on engaging police in the HIV response

Policy changes in the Netherlands have led to a shift in target groups of intervention, with special attention for at-risk populations responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime and nuisance. These groups are also vulnerable of developing problems in other life domains. This session discusses long-term development in four such groups This session will use presentations of evidence on the interaction of those with intellectual disability and police as a basis for a moderated discussion on using police leadership to help vulnerable groups with intellectual disability in contact with the criminal justice system This session captures a wide range of diverse situations in which law enforcement and public health intersect to illustrate the breadth of this relationship Leisure and entertainment play an important role in welfare societies. This development presents new challenges, especially regarding the consumption of alcohol and so-called party drugs.  Beside prevention and harm reduction work targeting party-drug-users, this work is more and more active on a structural cooperative level based on a multi stake holder approach. The presentations will integrate practical information and advice, achieved results and limits of such a cooperative approach. 11.30 – 12.10

Session summary The case of Petra, a 17-year old female student who was raped by a boy she had been kissing in a bar after a night out with friends, will be presented and be a basis for presentation of the integrated care provided to victims of rape by the Police Force Amsterdam, the Public Health Service Amsterdam and psychotherapists associated with the project. This session will involve discussion and audience Q&A. This session explores how the overly broad use of the criminal law to prosecute people with HIV for alleged non-disclosure, potential exposure or transmission is hurting public health and will focus on the role that the police can play in reducing the harm. This session draws attention to the global phenomenon of mega-sporting events and their impact on the sex working communities in the host countries, to build a better understanding of how these events provide an opportunity for countries to review their policies and laws on sex work. It will showcase improved methods for ensuring the safety of sex workers, avoiding the unfavourable environment created for sex workers; methods that police can support for equality in security, health and safety. There is a rapidly growing body of experience in police working with HIV prevention programs among people who inject drugs. This is of necessity, as prevention of HIV transmission among such communities is impossible without police support. The session explores this experience, which is being constantly hard-won on the front lines of the HIV response. Leisure and entertainment play an important role in welfare societies.  This development presents new challenges, especially regarding the consumption of alcohol and so-called party drugs.  Beside prevention and harm reduction work targeting party-drug-users, this work is more and more active on a structural cooperative level based on a multi stake holder approach. The presentations will integrate practical information and advice, achieved results and limits of such a cooperative approach. This session will identify effective and ineffective factors in the local identification and assessment of new trends in psychoactive drug use. It will outline the development of new guidelines for swift local responses and illustrate this through the case study of the local municipality of Breda.
