This webcast will offer a basic to moderate overview of vocabulary that you will run across while interpreting for your local law enforcement. We will discuss how and when we are to facilitate culture mediation, as well as how to maintain our role in uncomfortable situations. During the last hour of this webcast, we will explore different avenues of interpreting the Miranda Rights.
