|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.

|Session title||The LEPH Debate|
|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 obligation to also tackle wider social and public health concerns?

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
