This video focuses on an initiative of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), aimed at making police aware of how low literacy may affect the people they deal with.
The video features a number of people involved in the project, including police officers, corrections officials, specialists in clear communication, and literacy workers. They explain that low literacy can interfere with access to justice for complainants, witnesses and suspects, all of whom may have trouble understanding the complex material they are faced with.
CACP has produced fact sheets, a resource manual and a workshop curriculum for the project.
