CLA TEST # 16 Bank Robbery at the Amero Bank (Combined Language Assessment) for UN AMS/SAAT Exam

COMBINED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT
CLA (English) TEST # 16
BANK ROBBERY AT THE AMERO BANK
FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)
PATROL REPORT
At 1120 hours on Friday 7 March 2014, an anonymous caller informed police station # about a bank robbery at the Amro Bank on South Madonna Avenue. The caller stated that circa 30 minutes ago, a man and woman robbed the bank at gunpoint. He described the male as a Hispanic male about 1 meter 90 centimeters tall with a muscular build. The suspect was wearing a light and dark gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans with holes and black sneakers and had a black scarf covering the bottom portion of his face. The female suspect was about 1 meter 70 centimeters tall with a slender build. She was wearing a olive colored sweatshirt, blue jeans and white sneakers and had a pink colored hood covering her face. He further stated that in the incident, the two entered the bank, armed with semi-automatic guns. The male suspect allegedly jumped the teller's cage t demand money as the female ordered the customers and workers down to the floor. 15 minutes later, the suspects left the bank on foot, walked to a parked dark blue Chevrolet and drove off as police arrived on the scene.

FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 1
Police responded to the call at about 13:35 hours. Officer John Ramos and partner, Marc, were dispatched to the scene to track the suspects, Detectives swarmed the bank and crime scene investigators dusted the front door for fingerprints. Bank president Edward Gelada informed them that the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a plastic grocery bag. No one was injured during the incident.

Investigators searched the rear of the adjacent Ace Hardware business, which remained open after the robbery. Ace Hardware store management reported no commotion at the business related to the bank robbery or subsequent investigation.

Investigators also stopped by Dante Car Wash, a little farther down the road, but store personnel reported they didn't see anything related to the robbery. Police have released photos of the suspects being sought in the robbery of Amro Bank on the next morning. The bank surveillance camera photo released by police gives a good view of the suspects leaving the bank.

FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 2
Immediately after the robbery, Anthony Rossi Intermediate School on Jackson Avenue and Pitway Elementary School on Madonna Avenue entered shelter in place mode with the suspect's whereabouts unknown. The shelter in place was lifted about an hour later. The roads in the area were not closed during the investigation but traffic was slowed due to rubbernecking. Bank staff taped a notice to the front door informing customers the branch was closed "due to an emergency" and would shortly resume normal hours. The bank wasn't sealed off by the crime scene tape, and several bank customers pulled in to use the drive-thru window.

FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 3
Jerry Skalkowski, 50, of Buena said he had hoped to withdraw some money from hid direct-deposit paycheck, but a teller told him that wouldn't be possible and referred him to another Amro Bank branch. Learning of the bank robbery, Skalakowski asked the teller if anyone was hurt and the bank teller told him no.
The Amro Bank South Madonna branch previously was robbed in May 2013, January 2012 and June 2008.

FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 4
At about 1430 hours, Traffic Sergeant Kennan tried to stop a vehicle, a dark blue Chevrolet with license plate # 249867 for a traffic violation on Interstate 57. The suspects drove off and someone inside the car shot at the officer. More shots reportedly were fired from the Chevrolet’s sunroof as police chased the runway car. The chase continued for another 45 minutes until police lost sight of the vehicle on Lincoln Street. The brazen act of getting out of the car to shoot at officers made this a unique case. Police immediately informed the Duty Officer of Police Control Room, who relayed the information to all on duty traffic patrols and asked them to stop the suspect car when sighted.

               Welcome to the United Nations Police English Language Assessment. This Assessment consists of two parts, the Reading Comprehension and the Audio Comprehension. The instructions to both parts will be clearly explained before we commence.

The use of any computer devices, microphones, books, external notes or assistance from others is not permitted.  We expect full compliance and good conduct during this test.  Any candidates who fails to observe appropriate conduct will be excluded from the assessment process and the incident will be communicated in writing to the authorities of the Member State concerned and to the SAAT Coordinator in the UN Police Division.

Part one is the Reading Comprehension.
You will be given a mission-related story with a Question and Answer Sheet which contains ten questions related to the Key Facts of the story.  You will also be given a Blank Sheet of Paper for your note-taking.  Any notes that you take on the blank sheet you are allowed to keep throughout the exam.

Read the text very carefully.  You may write on the test as you wish.  You will not be graded for any marking made on the test itself, only on the Question and Answer Sheet. After reading the test, answer the 10 questions on the Question and Answer Sheet.  Be sure to include the entire key fact in your answer. It is not necessary to write in grammatically complete sentences.

It is highly recommended that you use the blank sheet of paper for important notes from the Reading.  These notes will be essential for Part 2 of the Assessment.  You will be able to keep only the sheet of paper with your notes for the second part of the exam.

Keep the Test and Question and Answer Sheet face down until you are asked to start. You will have 20 minutes to complete the Reading Comprehension.  The instructor will indicate when these 20 minutes begin.  The instructor will then announce when there are five remaining minutes and when there is one final minute.

After the 20 minutes have passed the instructor will collect the Reading test and the Question and Answer Sheet.  You will keep the written notes that you made on the Blank Sheet of Paper for the second part of the assessment.

Please write your full name and your individual test serial number clearly in the spaces provided on the Question and Answer Sheet you receive.

Good luck! 
SECOND PART OF CLA (Report Writing)
INTRODUCTION
This is the second section of the UNPOL Combined Language Assessment.  It is divided into two parts. In the first part you will hear one person describing the mission-related topic you have just read about in the Reading Comprehension – it will be introduced as the Narrative. In the second part, you will hear a conversation between two people who are discussing the same mission-related topic – it will be introduced as the Dialogue.

          Please be reminded that the use of any computer devices, microphones, books, external notes or assistance from others is not permitted. Candidates who fail to observe appropriate conduct during this test will be excluded from the assessment process. Such actions will be duly noted and communicated in writing to the authorities of the Member State concerned and to the SAAT Coordinator in the UN Police Division.

          You will be given a Report Writing Form and another Blank Sheet of paper. Take careful notes on the Blank Sheet of paper of both the Narrative and the Dialogue. Pay attention to the important facts and key information. You will hear the recording only one time.

          Once the Narrative and Dialogue are finished, you will be asked to use your notes from both the Reading and the Audio parts to write your own complete police report. You will have 30 minutes to complete your police report. The instructor will indicate when these 30 minutes begin. The instructor will then announce when there are 5 minutes remaining and when there is one final minute.

          Please do not forget to write your full name and your individual test serial number clearly in the spaces provided on the Report Writing Sheet.

Good Luck!
NARRATIVE
Multiple police departments including the FBI, the Department of Alcohol & Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the regional Stop Team cooperated to help track down the two suspects. The suspects really didn't have a chance with all those departments working together.

At 1750 hours, the suspects' car was sighted by Patrol Officer Barbara Sanders. She immediately informed all duty patrol officers in the vicinity. Police mobilized and when they tried to stop the suspects' vehicle they fired repeatedly at police and a high-speed chase began. The pursuit continued as the suspects fired with AK-47 style rifles from the Chevrolet. Fourteen police cars and many homes along the robbers' path were peppered with bullets. Police shot out their tires, but shooting continued, fatally wounding the two suspects. When the vehicle's tires were shot, officers exchange gunfire with at least one of the assailants. The car finally was stopped neat the Bomi Highway exit and the pair was arrested with the assistance of Riot Guards, armed police and the anti-terror squad. The two wounded suspects were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds.

Jeremiah Ellis, 28, and Ashley Patternson, 24, both of the East Chicago, were taken the custody as suspects in the armed robbery of Amro Bank on 2720 South Madonna Avenue. They are being held in the Central Jail in Abidjan.
