Midland has developed the Limited English Proficiency (LEP) policy to help identify reasonable steps to provide language assistance for LEP citizens as required by Executive Order 13166. Any LEP person is one who does not speak English as their primary language and who has limited ability to read, speak, write, or understand English.

Strategies listed below are the result of a four-factor analysis performed by the Town. Strategies to provide meaningful access to LEP persons to ensure that they can communicate effectively will be achieved by measures including but not limited to:

Training staff on resources available to the Town to communicate with LEP individuals

Providing notices that LEP individuals can understand so they may engage other communication techniques

Utilize bilingual police department personnel to communicate with LEP individuals

Utilize computer-based communication tools

Utilize smartphone and portable tablet based interpretation applications on an as-needed basis
