The only Spanish-language guide exclusively for those sworn to protect and serve

There's no substitute for clear communication when you're on the job. That's why in an America where one in five citizens speaks Spanish, it is vitally important that all law enforcement professionals possess basic Spanish-language skills.

More important, it gives them to you in the context of dozens of real-life scenarios--from a traffic accident to a criminal trespass, from a homicide to a disturbing the peace call.
