Prior to becoming a police officer, Antonia served in the U.S. Army as a Hawk Missile Crew Member.
Antonia created the ‘Basic Spanish For Law Enforcement’ course to help officers recognize dangerous words . Many officers have asked for “easier” words or shorter terms. Keeping phrases and terms shorter, not only helps the officers remember them it also helps with recognizing the most important parts.
I never imagined that being a Spanish speaking officer would lead me into creating courses to assist officers. I have also been told by Spanish speaking officers that even though they grew up speaking Spanish this course has helped them in the field.
In creating this course, we kept in mind the functionality of the course and reminding everyone that practice makes perfect.
The goal of this course is to keep officers safe.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section style=”margin: 0px; padding: 45px 0px; “][cs_row style=”margin: 0px auto; padding: 0px; ” inner_container=”true”][cs_column style=”padding: 0px; ” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″][x_accordion][x_accordion_item title=”Why are you teaching officers Spanish when we are in America and they should speak English?” open=”true”]This course is about keeping Law Enforcement safe – across all language barriers. Not knowing what a person is saying can mean the difference between life and death – for the officer or the citizen.[/x_accordion_item][/x_accordion][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section]
