English for Police purposes

Post by jtjohnston » Sun Mar 03, 2013 10:20 pm

I'm teaching ESP to police recruits in the Cegep system in Quebec. My students need to have a certain level of competency in the English language.

I have ready access to "material" from a police service in another province. These daily "media Reports" (below) are chocked full of necessary vocabulary and Police English in general. (Police English is almost like learning another dialect.)

To be honest, I'm running out of ideas on how to use these media reports.

I'm looking for fresh ideas. Fresh eyes.
