William C. Harvey, M.S. - All books by this author
This book 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. The book contains dialogues that simulate such scenes.
