Arlington Police seek bilingual volunteers
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Police in Arlington County are looking for volunteers with foreign-language skills to assist officers on patrol in the county.
In particular, police are looking for people who can speak Spanish, French, Mongolian, Arabic and certain African dialects. Those languages are prevalent in the county's immigrant community and police want to make sure they can communicate with as many people as possible.
Volunteers in the "Bilingual Ride-a-Long Program" join officer on patrol or may be called upon to assist with translations and investigations throughout the county. The program requires a commitment of only 10 hours a month.
