St. Cloud, Minn., PD uses device to interpret for officers
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — The St. Cloud Police Department has some new technology to help officers better communicate with citizens who don't speak English.
The unit is called ELSA. It's a hands-free device that operates like a cellphone and can be clipped to an officer's shirt.
It provides on-demand, immediate interpretation of 180 different languages.
