Police stories: Working with people with low literacy (2009)

In this document, prepared by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) with funding from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), police officers reflect on the impact of low literacy among the people they deal with.

The officers share their concern that some people don’t understand what is going on in the court system and discuss telltale signs that low literacy is a problem for someone.

They also discuss changes they would like to see, including simplifying legal documents and making police officers more aware of the relationship of low literacy and crime.
