A newcomers guide to policing and the law
Cambridgeshire Constabulary, working in partnership with the Cambridgeshire Criminal Justice Board, has produced a 20 page 'Newcomer's Guide to Policing and the Law in Cambridgeshire'.
Funded nationally by a grant from the Office for Criminal Justice Reform, the guide is designed to aid communication with a growing population of workers and visitors from outside Britain. The guide has been translated into 16 languages to give crime prevention and safety advice to newcomers to the county and to offer help to crime victims who cannot speak English. It also provides useful information about the law in Britain which may be different to the laws in other countries. The guide includes information on driving and the documents needed to drive legally; drinking and driving; alcohol and drugs and carrying a weapon.
Guides are available in the following languages:
French, Polish, Portuguese, Czech, Slovak, Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish (Sorani), Urdu, Chinese Mandarin and Chinese Cantonese.
