Questions to Use for Crime Scene Identification of Limited English Proficient (LEP) Victim

General Material
Training Tools
Published Date
May, 2017

This document features sample introductory questions that an officer can ask when meeting a person with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). They are based on scenarios that an officer will likely encounter during his or her patrol. The first two scenarios presented relate to domestic violence and sexual assault incidents. The goal is to ask questions that are not related to information the officer may need for a criminal case, that can build rapport with victims and witnesses and avoid yes/no questions helping officers assess the need for a qualified interpreter to help LEP persons communicate with law enforcement and promote accuracy of police reports and criminal investigations.
