Description

In October 2007, the Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) was asked by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office (GHSO) to help them assess the needs of law enforcement in their ability to effectively interact with the Limited English Proficient (LEP) community. In response, OCJS designed and implemented an online survey to capture these needs. E-mails that included a link to the survey were sent to 510 Ohio law enforcement agencies. Of these, 203 agencies responded, a response rate of 40 percent.
