U.S. Department of Justice: Model Police Department Directive: Limited English Proficiency Guidelines [pdf]

The Office of Justice Programs at the U.S. Department of Justice developed a model police on language access for police departments. The model was developed out of the settlement agreements DOJ reached when it brought enforcement actions against police departments for failure to provide language access to limited English proficient individuals. This model policy has been adopted by police departments and serves as a guide for DOJ expectations of what police departments policies on language access should be.
