Limited English Proficiency Policy

The U.S. Attorney's Office believes in teamwork, open communication, and professionalism in serving all of the cultural groups of our community.

We appreciate that some of our residents may not be proficient in English and are committed to ensuring that our services are easily accessible to all, regardless of English proficiency.

Therefore, the following considerations are provided to all persons:

  1. When contacting or visiting the U.S. Attorney’s Office, persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) may either secure the assistance of an interpreter of their own choosing at their own expense, or they may inquire of the U.S. Attorney’s Office about other arrangements for language assistance.
  2. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will take reasonable steps to ensure that where needed, all interpretation and translation services will be handled through individuals who are competent to provide such services at a level of fluency, comprehension, and confidentiality appropriate to the purpose.
  3. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has in place personnel capable of providing assistance in Spanish, French, German, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, and Persian. All other language assistance will be addressed as needed.
