Abstract: This article presents Knowledge of English as a Second Language in Personnel Dealings with Foreigners in the Context of International Security. If Ukraine wants to be classified among tourist and international business countries, it should have capable, polite as well as educated security forces. Education in this case means that, for example, a Ukrainian police officer can talk to a foreigner, tourist who is in trouble, had an accident, or is even a suspect – in the foreigner's native language. A lot could be done in this respect for better co-operation of security officers, including police officers, and better knowledge of foreign languages. (Published Abstract)
