Police Chief Ryan to be honored for translation work

This morning's Ithaca Journal has more detail on the honor Dryden Police Chief Margaret Ryan will be receiving from the Tompkins County Human Rights Commission:

Ryan was nominated for HRC's Michael Padula Award for her work in broadening the Translator/Interpreter Program at Cornell University Public Service Center to include emergency services training.

It's a project whose benefits she understands in terms of street-level police work.

Ryan said she became more closely involved with TIP after seeking help from translators in the program to help in the investigation of a 2003 armed robbery at a Chinese restaurant in Dryden.
