Law Enforcement Interpreting for Deaf Persons is the first comprehensive text on the subject of law enforcement interaction with Deaf persons and interpreters. The manual offers a comprehensive guide to the special conditions, logistics and considerations that must be taken into account by professionals when Deaf persons are involved in the legal system. Topics covered include: interpretation of the Miranda warning and subsequent interviews with Deaf suspects; prison intakes; violent crimes committed by Deaf suspects or perpetrated against Deaf victims; interpreting for Deaf juveniles and children; and the laws and legal precedents that govern interactions between law enforcement officers, Deaf persons and interpreters. Carla Mathers, J.D., a leading authority on legal issues and interpreting, calls Law Enforcement Interpreting for Deaf Persons "a much needed contribution to this field." With interactions between Deaf persons and the legal system carrying such high personal stakes, this contribution could not come at a better time. This manual provides essential information and guidance to best protect a Deaf person's right to due process while avoiding simple errors that could compromise legal investigations. We think you will agree, Law Enforcement Interpreting for Deaf Persons is a valuable text for both interpreters who are new to the field as well as interpreters with years of experience.
