Police Interpreting II 
Saturday 26 May 2018


Dear Firstname

Working with Interpreters in Policing brings with it a range of additional and experiential skills and challenges. Following on from the first PD where working with interpreters was explored through general duties policing, in this session the presenters will explore the contexts in which police use interpreters in the course of complex investigations and the adaptations in practice when working with victims, offenders, and witnesses. The presenters will touch on various settings within the evidence gathering process and the importance of how evidence is presented for the benefit of the Court . The presenters will also explore the issue of language and access in a variety of operational and critical incident contexts and through authentic scenarios. Further they will explore and respond to the important aspect of vicarious trauma of interpreters when working in challenging policing contexts.
