City of Pittsburgh to engage and inform Chinese-speaking residents (among others) through new Multicultural Liaison Unit.

The City of Pittsburgh announced Monday it will launch a Multicultural Liaison Unit
to help build trustworthy and sustainable relationships between Department of Public Safety workers and members of the city's immigrant and refugee communities.

The unit will translate police, fire and medic materials into several foreign languages, hold educational events for immigrant communities, and provide multicultural training for Public Safety recruits.
One of the five foreign languages identified is Chinese. The new unit will focus on three areas: Communication and Language Access, Outreach and Education, and Multicultural Trainings.
