Across the broadest range of public health issues, the Law Enforcement and Public Health Conferences held in 2102, 2014 and 2016 worked to:
- Enhance local, national and international political and institutional leadership
- Understand, develop and sustain partnerships
- Translate research to policy to practice
- Promote the critical role of education and training
- Develop a multidisciplinary research agenda and methodology
- Build and promote ongoing interactions between interested people through the GLEPH Association
Objectives for LEPH2018 Toronto
The LEPH2018 Convener and Partners believe that, in addressing complex health and security issues:
- Law enforcement and health are intimately related and necessary partners
- Organizations from both fields should work together closely to increase the health and safety of citizens
- This is an important multidisciplinary domain which requires more exploration in empirical detail and in principle, and a greater focus on what the intersection means and necessitates, and how it can be improved and developed
- Further learnings in this domain are best gained by combining research insights and professional practices. This requires the bringing together of researchers, practitioners and policymakers
- International exchange of insights and practices is an important accelerator in the development of this important field
- This field has a crucial contribution to make to the achievement of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
