About LEPH (TILES)
Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH) consists of a team of multidisciplinary researchers who study how the two disciplines of law enforcement (or policing) and health co-exist in the field, as well as conceptually.
Research projects on LEPH essentially consist of the critical analysis of police organisations’ collaboration with other government and non-government agencies. From an applied research perspective, the ultimate goal of LEPH is to gather examples of evidence-based practices to develop better, more efficient collaborations in the field, and better service delivery.
Members of LEPH include researchers who have expertise in police studies, socio-legal studies, criminology, sociology, health, and public health.
The Tasmanian Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture (TasOPCAT) Network was formed in March 2020 as a project within Law Enforcement and Public Health (LEPH).
