    Not wrong if he insists that other language speakers (Chinese, Russian, Farsi, etc) also speak English when around other police officers. English is the common language that all officers have to be able to speak. Unity among the officers is gained by looking alike, thinking alike, and speaking the same language.

    Liar. That would be illegal. They have interpreters. They can have an interpreter on the phone really quick.

    I misread that, I thought you were a member of the public. If not, the union would deal with it quickly. So, same result either way.

    Wrong is a moral conclusion. It is not illegal.

    Yes. If the employees are not talking business, nor to a Spanish speaking member of the public, they can speak in whatever language they want. I am amused at people who say "they could be talking about ME". (They probably aren't.)

    Why are so many Americans so afraid of other languages? It is common in other parts of the world for people to speak many languages, and here we are fighting to only have to ever hear just the one. So weird, to fight for LESS knowledge.

      I didn't miss the point. They clearly need to be able to speak english to obtain the job, but having a casual conversation with a colleague doesn't make any difference as to which language it's in.
