The goal and mission of APD Communication Facilitators is to remove the Spanish language barrier between APD Officers and the Spanish speaking public. CFs are a resource to any APD Officer who does not speak Spanish especially when that language presents itself as a barrier to their required duties. Additionally, CFs assist the Spanish speaking public with their efforts to communicate with APD Officers when the Spanish language is a barrier. We hope our efforts will afford the Spanish speaking population access to a justice system that is equivalent to what the English speaking public receives. In addition, CFs try to remove other communication obstacles like behavior or, attitude resulting from cultural differences between the Spanish speaking public and APD Officers not familiar with Spanish Cultural issues.
