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 11.15 – 11.55

Marketplace of Ideas   Policing First  University of Worcester
Session objective To examine the elements of the partnership between the UN Office of Drug Control (UNODC), Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) and the Law Enforcement and HIV Network (LEAHN) in promoting harm reduction and to showcase examples of good collaboration, campaigns and training resources. 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?
In times of crisis the police and public health care are often convicted to each other, and forced to work together under the supervision of a city council. Collaborations like these tend to initiate general, repetitive processes and incidents that re-occur. We aim to present participants’ concrete learning points for constructive and fruitful collaborations in the future. 3.45 – 4.25

Session title The LEPH Debate
Location Aula
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 objective 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 describe three methods currently in use in the UK utilising multi-agency partnerships as a means of reducing the on-going risks associated with convicted child sexual abusers. 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. 11.30 – 12.10

Session objective 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. The session will report the results of a recently published (May 2014) independent evaluation of the “Stop it Now!” Helplines operating in both the UK and the Netherlands – which are based upon a public health approach to tackling child sexual abuse – and will highlight the key points to consider in developing and introducing something similar in a particular nation or cultural context. 2.00 – 2.40

Professionals agree that more efforts should be made to increase and improve the resilience of young children. A movie titled ‘Nienke’ was made by the Amsterdam Police, in close collaboration with several health care parties, among which was the Public Health Service. The 18 minute film will be shown, followed by information about the educational program and there will be time for questions.
