East Lothian and Midlothian Public Protection Office

Welcome to the East Lothian and Midlothian Public Protection website.

The East Lothian and Midlothian Public Protection Team was established in March 2014 in the Brunton Hall, Musselburgh. It has brought together Lead Officers and staff from Adult Support and Protection, Child Protection and Violence Against Women and Girls in recognition that for most service users their needs often cover more than one area. Our Public Protection structure allows for close collaboration across all of these areas and recognises the importance of partnership working for our service users and our communities.

Currently co-located with the team are Midlothian and East Lothian Drug and Alcohol Partnership (MELDAP - http://www.meldap.co.uk) staff and the 'J' Division Police Public Protection Unit. Going forward the new office will provide inter-agency staff with innovative opportunities to improve outcomes for those in need of support and protection throughout East Lothian and Midlothian.

East Lothian and Midlothian Public Protection Committee

The East Lothian and Midlothian Public Protection Committee (EMPPC) is the key strategic group dealing with public protection matters across East Lothian and Midlothian and includes representatives from key partners (Social Work, Police Scotland, NHS Lothian, Education, Housing, 3rd sector etc). The committee reports to senior officers through the East and Midlothian Critical Services Oversight Group.

If you have any questions or would like further information in relation to the office or committee then please e-mail: emppo@eastlothian.gov.uk. Further information in relation to the different areas of public protection can be found via the links above.
