Having a second language makes you more competitive during the Police application.
There is a constant influx of cultures entering the country and it is important for the Police to be able to communicate with all members of the community.
Officers who can do this are a definite asset to the Police department.
If you already speak a second one, great! If you don't, and want to learn, you can attend any night school program and register for a non credit class.
You can check out your local community center. They sometimes have classes where they will teach just a "conversational" portion of a language.
Now, what should you choose? Personally, I don't think it matters. If you're going to learn a new language, you might as well just choose one that you have a genuine interest in.
If you manage to become fluent, great! If not, that's fine. Just don't put down on the application that you are fluent. Put down that you can speak "conversational XXXX" and that you are presently learning more.
