Why Interpreters and Translators are needed in Pittsburgh, PA
The city's population is estimated at 300,286 as of 2019, making it the 66th-largest in the United States, and the second-largest in Pennsylvania behind Philadelphia. As the hub of western Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh has a population of more than 2.32 million, making it the largest in both the Ohio Valley and Appalachia, the second in Pennsylvania, and the 27th in the nation.
It is estimated that the top five ethnic groups in the city are German (19.7%), Irish (15.8%), Italian (11.8%) Polish (8.1%), and English (4.6%), while the metro area is primarily composed of German Americans and Italian Americans. Pittsburgh is home to one of the largest Italian-American communities in the country, along with the fifth-largest Ukrainian community. A large Croatian community exists in Pittsburgh, one of the largest in the United States. In general, the Pittsburgh Metro Area has the largest population of Slavic Americans in the country.
A significant number of African Americans live in Pittsburgh, mainly in its East End neighborhood. Additionally, the city has a small Asian and Latino community made up primarily of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans.
In the most recent development in a long-standing effort to improve communication between law enforcement and people of diverse backgrounds, the Justice Department has reached an agreement with the Hazleton Police department. The United States Attorney’s Office for Middle District Pennsylvania announced that they would be providing new strategies as part of their settlement agreement for HPD and City officials to integrate LEP individuals into local police operations through training on how best to communicate with them.
The US attorney's office presents one way in which we can all help bridge language barriers by ensuring our communities are able to work together effectively both within government agencies and among civilians outside these organizations - so everyone is safe from crime or injustice no matter what your native tongue maybe!
The Justice Department initiated its review after receiving a complaint from the Community Justice Project on behalf of an LEP Hazleton resident who, on two separate occasions, within days of each other had no choice but to rely on his young son and then a co-worker. The HPD has since agreed to secure appropriate and reliable means for communicating with their large Spanish-speaking community.
Under the agreement, HPD will soon release a new standard operating procedure on language access that requires officers to provide appropriate assistance in any contact with members of non-English speaking communities. Over the next year, HPD and city officials intend to take additional steps including providing Spanish and English notices as well as complaint forms for individuals who are not fluent in one or more languages; assessing bilingual officer's skillset on how they can best support the LEP community members; training staff about when it is necessary to offer interpreters/translators - which might be difficult because there aren't many available resources.
