Event cost


Join international practitioners, researchers and policy makers at LEPH2019 to explore the complex and diverse intersections of law enforcement and public health. 

Together we can start to dissect the issues and answer questions, such as: 

  • Why is the obvious intersection of law enforcement (especially police) and public health so inadequately recognised and poorly understood?
  • Why is the marginalisation of certain populations the enemy of security and health?
  • Can inclusive policing really work to overcome marginalisation?
  • What actually works ‘on the ground’ and in practice?
  • Can you help build police-public health partnerships that are effective, accountable, sustainable and inclusive?

Edinburgh Napier University

The University is creating a programme of work in the area of Law Enforcement and Public Health, bringing together researchers from across School of Health & Social Care and School of Applied Sciences.

Inga Heyman, Chair of the organising committee for LEPH 2019 and Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing at Edinburgh Napier University, said: 

“We are delighted LEPH 2019 is coming to Scotland with Edinburgh Napier University as convenor. This builds on our affiliation with the conference since 2014, and our continued membership of the Global Law Enforcement and Public Health Association, and developing national work with the Scottish Government and partners. 

"We also look forward to launching the Scottish Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health at the conference, which will be hosted by Edinburgh Napier University along with other Scottish universities and partners.”
