Police Interpreting Reports
First direct call from West Midlands Police 'in ages'
'Who will know if there is an issue? An English speaking officer or a non-English speaking suspect or a witness?'
'When I arrived I was told by the custody officer that ALS/Capita had called at 9.20 to say the interpreter was no longer available and they wouldn't be able to supply one until 7 this evening'
'The CTI system is clearly still unable to provide a complete service'
