Communicating in Spanish helps law enforcement officers build trust and establish positive relationships with Spanish-speaking communities, which can be critical for gathering information and preventing and solving crimes.

If law enforcement officers cannot communicate in Spanish, it can lead to misunderstandings and potentially dangerous situations. For example, a Spanish-speaking individual may need help understanding the instructions given to them by an officer during an emergency or may be hesitant to report a crime due to language barriers. Most importantly, knowing Spanish will maintain the safety of the officer.
