A Concise and Practical Handbook of Spanish for the Law Enforcement Officer.
Clarkson, William M.
This textbook is used for a one-semester course in Spanish for law enforcement officers at Eastern Kentucky University. The course responds to the need for the law enforcement officer to have a basic knowledge of Spanish in order to eliminate the communication barrier between himself and the members of the Spanish-speaking community he serves. Although the book proceeds in a building-block fashion, each lesson is autonomous, so that the reader who requires the special vocabulary of a particular phase of police work need only consult certain sections. Each of the seven lessons concentrates on specific features of Spanish grammar and specific police-oriented vocabulary. The lessons cover topics such as activities on the beat, traffic violations and accidents, interviews with holdup victims, making arrests, and dealing with illegal aliens. Each lesson consists of an introductory hypothetical dialogue between a policeman and a citizen, phrases, grammar, exercises, and additional vocabulary. Vocabulary lists for special topics are interspersed through the book. An appendix on the Spanish verb system and a general vocabulary list follow the lessons. (CLK)
