Law enforcement and public health: setting the research agenda for Scotland .
  Police Scotland’s contact with people with vulnerability and health problems has been increasing year-on-year, with significant costs and unknown outcomes associated. This is unsustainable, and pathways involving increased partnership between the police and other partners is now essential. Finding ways of delivering more efficient, evidence-based partnership working is a key national priority. To that end, a one day event, hosted on January 15th 2018, brought together an Expert Advisory Group (EAG) of 26 members across law enforcement, public health, and academia to inform and support the development of a co-constructed programme of research crossing the intersect of Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH). The event benefitted from an international perspective, delivered via keynote address by Professor Nick Crofts, President of the Global Law Enforcement & Public Health Association. The event, hosted by the Scottish Government, was part of a larger project funded by a SIPR Police Community Relations Collaborative Project Grant.
