English Language Fellow Jennifer Kagawa conducted a 2-week “English Communication for National Police in Cambodia” course for 30 police officers in Phnom Penh. The officers were represented equally from three divisions: Tourist, Traffic & Public Order, and Police Academy of Cambodia.

Seven women and twenty-three men attended. Over approximately 30 hours, officers focused on building English skills in the following areas: assisting foreigners with directions, requesting and correctly noting personal information, assisting victims of theft, and completing crime reports. Participants enjoyed the course and remarked that it was extremely useful and applicable to their work.
