CANTONESE FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
A Practical Guide to Cantonese for Law Enforcement, Immigration, Customs, Corrections and Security Professionals
Immigrants from Asian countries now make up the largest proportion of new immigrants to North America. Cantonese Chinese is currently the most common Asian dialect encountered by law enforcement officers and public safety officials working in fields such as policing, security, customs, immigration and corrections.
Cantonese for Law Enforcement is a new, original reference guide which accomplishes two goals:
It helps enforcement officers who already speak some Cantonese to communicate more effectively by providing the specific terms and phrases needed in law enforcement; and
- It provides the student or teacher of Cantonese with the first phrasebook and vocabulary specifically designed for law enforcement.
Developed by a western police officer influenced by his own experiences working in a North American Chinese community for over ten years, Cantonese for Law Enforcement provides practical vocabulary for the types of real-life situations commonly encountered in law enforcement.
Cantonese for Law Enforcement has been field tested by police officers in agencies including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and recognized as a valuable new law enforcement resource.
