CANCELLED: Interacting with Deaf / Hard of Hearing #7887
Wednesday, February 8, 2023
Law Enforcement Officers are in daily contact with all types of people. Considering that nearly 10% of the US population has some sort hearing loss, it is reasonable to assume that some of those contacts would be with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, especially with the baby boomers reaching their senior years.
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), people who are deaf or hard of hearing should be given the same services provided to the other 90% of the population. They may not be excluded or segregated from services
The learning objectives are the minimum required content of the Interacting with Drivers who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing Training. This course is a required course to be completed no later than the second anniversary of the date the officer is licensed or the date an officer applies for an intermediate proficiency certificate, whichever date is earlier. This takes effect March 1, 2016.
