Lexington is growing by leaps and bounds and many of the people moving to the area speak English as a second language.
This growth, is leading Lexington Police Department to make sure they can "protect and serve" even when there is a language barrier.
One of the departments bi-lingual personnel is Officer Duane Baillio; he's a Spanish translating officer.
Baillio feels that being able to communicate with someone in their native tongue makes building relationships and solving crimes easier when there is a language barrier.
The Lexington Police Department also has officers that speak French, German, Arabic, and several other languages.
The force is actively getting more officers certified to speak a second language.
