I
dentication of suspects, victims, and witnesses is critical to effective lawenforcement; ofcers often interact with persons of international origin or  background, whether nationals or immigrants (legal or illegal). America is theland of immigrants, and many jurisdictions contain communities populated with persons from around the world. Police in the U.S. often contend with organizedcrime organizations from Russia, Mexico, and China, among many other locations, and proper identication of these and other international groups isimperative.A name is a source of information about that person for law enforcement,including his/her gender, heritage/race, country of origin, marital status, socialstatus, occupation, and religion. The listed order and signicance of names vary by country, region, religion, and other factors. Paying particular attention to thevarious international naming conventions will be benecial to law enforcement,as being able to understand the order and signicance of international namesalone can provide information, regardless of possible language barriers that mayexist.This guide on international naming conventions is designed for law enforcementto better understand how names from various countries are formed and whatinformation can be obtained from these names. The guide is generalized; namingconventions can vary by regional and familial practices. It should also be notedthat immigrants to the U.S. often change the order of their names to t Westernconventions. If you are unsure whether a person switched his/her naming order,you can type the given and/or family name into a search engine (Google.comor Yahoo.com for example) for assistance in determining the order listed. For additional information, visit the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) program Web site, www.slatt.org. You must be a member to access information oninternational names; new members can register on the Web site.
