Limited English Proficiency (LEP)- Language Assistance

"It is the purpose of this policy to provide guidance to employees as to their legal obligations (in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964) when they have contact with an individual(s) who have limited English language proficiency, because language barriers can sometimes inhibit or even prohibit individuals with limited English language proficiency from gaining meaningful access and participation in Sheriff’s Office services and activities. "

"Sheriff’s Office personnel will take all practical steps to provide Language Assistance Services to individuals with limited English when they encounter or have reason to believe they may encounter LEP individuals in the course of their duties, at no cost to the LEP individual. "
