According to the book description of Joe Blanco's Survival Street Spanish for 911 Telecommunicators, “Everything a 911 Telecommunicator will need to work incoming Spanish only calls. Quickly acknowledge which service is needed and why. If you can read English you'll be able to work with this book. This is probably one of the best resources on the market.”

Through lessons concerning basic concepts, job-related responsibilities (medical terms, ambulance reports, transport forms, etc.), and Latino family, dialect, and gang information, Survival Street Spanish for EMS/Fire First Responder prepares the emergency medical technician for every call scenario. Throughout the United States -- encompassing all of the minute variations of the Spanish language -- this manual is a vital tool in improving Spanish communications.”

According to the book description of Joe Blanco's Survival Street Spanish for Police Officers, “This book is designed to assist the police officer in serving the needs of the Latino community. Through lessons concerning basic concepts, job-related responsibilities (interrogations, arrests, traffic stops etc.), and Latino family, danger expressions, and gang information, Survival Street Spanish for Police Officers prepares the police officer for every call scenario. Throughout the United States -- encompassing all of the minute variations of the Spanish language -- this manual is a vital tool in improving Spanish relations with local police. In addition to usual police duties, this book also concentrates on officer safety.

One reader of Joe Blanco's Survival Street Spanish for Police Officers said, “This is the second book that I have gotten from Joe. As an officer in NC, I have attended one of his classes. Folks, he is the BEST Spanish instructor that I have EVER had and I will take more of his classes and recommend him to anyone. I learned more Spanish from him in a 5 day class than I did in 3 years worth in High School. I have ordered a second book from him to replace the one that I wore out. This is the most excellent book that you can buy. This is what this book has folks... danger words/expressions, felony traffic stops, misd traffic stops, DWI processing, intake processing, and God only knows how much more. It is worth it.”

About the Greensboro Police Department

Although the Greensboro Police Department did not actually come into existence as an officially sanctioned governmental agency until 1889, its roots extend back for several prior decades.

 

Guilford County was settled during the mid-1700s by German, Scotch-Irish, and Quaker immigrants. In 1771, Governor Ingram officially established Guilford County, and Guilford Courthouse was named as the county seat in 1774. By 1781, this small village had a population of several hundred residents.

 

In 1807, the North Carolina State Legislature authorized the creation of the town of Greensborough. The following year, the city was formally established on a 42-acre site, and in 1809 it became the county seat.

 

In 1810, the General Assembly passed a legislative charter for the town of Greensborough which set forth its first set of town regulations. Six men were appointed as Commissioners of Police and were charged with preserving law and order in and for the town. These commissioners continued to be appointed for the next 14 years.

 

In 1824, Greensborough became a self-governing town. It was placed under the charge of five Town Commissioners, one of whom was the Town Constable. Five years later, in 1829, the Town Commissioners appointed the first "Public Officer," a position which was the forerunner of the modern police officer. Thirty-one year old John McClintock Logan received the appointment. His duties also included being the town's Tax Collector.

 

At the time of his appointment, Officer Logan policed a town about one-quarter of a mile square, with a population of 369 citizens. Employed on a part-time basis, he was charged with enforcing nine regulatory town ordinances for which he received an annual salary of fifteen dollars.
