'Ello, Hola, salve – London police officers given courses in dealing with public in Spanish, Polish, Russian, Arabic… | The Independent
The aim of the lessons, open to all officers but offered with a preference to beat officers, is to allow Scotland Yard staff to improve communication with minority groups when offering crime prevention advice or in situations such as answering a 999 call.

An internal briefing document seen by The Independent states another of the goals of the programme is to "change public perception" of the force.

The courses, which offer 40 hours of learning over six weeks, aim to offer a level of knowledge comparable to a GCSE, with vocabulary tailored to the needs of policing.

In a reflection of the shifting nature of London's ethnic mix, the most popular courses taken up so far are Arabic, Polish and Spanish.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Policing a city as diverse as London requires our officers… to engage with different communities and the languages spoken with them. We have recently offered officers and staff the opportunity to develop their language skills in order to improve direct communication between police and the communities we serve."

The newly conversant officers join a list of 1,000 Yard staff who are already registered as having specialist language skills because of their family background or previous experience.

PLOS ONE: A Multi-Level Bayesian Analysis of Racial Bias in Police Shootings at the County-Level in the United States, 2011–2014
Under the assumptions that police express no racial bias in use of force upon encountering suspects/civilians, and also engage in interactions with suspects/civilians in direct proportion to race/ethnicity-specific crime rates (where crime rates covary with race/ethnicity), one would expect to see an association between racial bias in police shootings and race-specific crime rates—an association that is not found in these results. As such, the results of this study provide evidence that there is racial bias in police shootings that is not explainable as a response to local-level crime rates, and is related to either: 1) racial bias in police encountering suspects/civilians, or 2) racial bias by police in the use of force upon encountering suspects/civilians.
