A specialist in adult bilingual/bicultural education provides a practical guide for police officers to learn essential Spanish words and sentences in order to properly understanding and handle any situation, whether it be simple traffic control, a medical emergency, crime scene investigation, or even an active drug bust.

Barron's Educational Publishing
This book, with its three audio compact discs, was designed to help English-speaking police officers, court officers, public safety workers, parole officers, and other law-related personnel who work among Hispanics but who have little or no command of spoken Spanish. It will also prove helpful to firefighters, and social workers whose duties take them into Spanish-speaking communities. Rather than concentrating on rules of grammar and memorization of verb forms and other such details, the author concentrates on useful vocabulary and phrases for making oneself understood in Spanish, and for understanding others when dealing with accidents and accident reports, crime investigations, public gatherings, court and legal procedures, and other aspects of law enforcement and public safety. Both the book and its optional compact disc present dialogues that simulate such scenes. The CDs (which replace cassette tapes that were available with the first edition) also offer help in pronunciation and listening comprehension to non-Spanish speakers.
