What is Spanish for Basic Recruits?

Spanish for Basic Recruits is a conversational/command level Spanish course specifically designed for cadets attending law enforcement academies. It teaches cadets the exact vocabulary needed to do their job when communicating with Spanish speakers. This state of the art virtual course will provide consistent, reliable and effective training time and time again.

Why Teach Spanish at Law Enforcement Academies?

An academy should incorporate this course into their existing program to prepare cadets to communicate and understand the Spanish language. As the Hispanic population continues to grow, experience shows that police officers that know law enforcement Spanish (real life situational Spanish) will build trust with the Hispanic community, save hundreds of dollars by eliminating calls to the language line, and allowing peace officers to do their job without wasting valuable time.

Knowing how to give basic Spanish commands, or ask basic questions can greatly lend to greater effectiveness on the street. If police officers can ask witnesses for a description of the assailant, or a description of the car used in the drive-by, it will speed up dissemination of information that will be needed to solve the case.

Every cadet will leave the academy with tools and skills to:

  • Conduct accurate field interviews in Spanish to speed up dissemination of information
  • Prevent incidents from escalating by comprehending the victim, suspect or witness
  • Promote trust with the Hispanic community to improve and increase crime reporting presenting a safer community
  • Understand threatening slang to maintain safety and reduce hostile situations
  • Assure and calm the Spanish speaker that the police are here to help
  • Reduce misunderstandings when a Spanish speaker has an emergency
  • Understand cultural differences to reduce conflicts and misunderstandings
  • Eliminate the need to call the language line as often providing relief to strained budgets.

All is going fantastic. Have had nothing but positive comments from the students, and with the administrator account it is really easy to track.

Spanish on Patrol was our Academy’s first venture into online training. The students love the course because they can move at their own pace, practice as much as they want and not have to come to our training facility. As an administrator, it is very easy to monitor the student’s progress. The weekly report that is sent weekly makes it easy for me to alert the student’s training officers when students are not making an effort.
