Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing & Police Interaction

Given the gravity of recent events between police and members of the deaf/hard-of-hearing community, we have recently developed a training program for police departments in the United States in order to assist them in becoming an even stronger resource for the under-served populations.

Part of what we cover:

  • What are the norms of Deaf Culture?
  • What does the ADA state if a deaf person requests an interpreter?
  • How to effectively mitigate risk factors when working with the deaf/hard-of-hearing citizens;
  • Communicating with deaf/hard-of-hearing children especially in emergency situations;
  • Learning basic ASL signs/commands that can be utilized in almost any situation.

Our training objectives, guidelines and outline is available upon request. Please do not hesitate to contact us at posner@gmail.com to initiate discussion on how we can best serve your municipality.

Or, if you prefer, you may use our easy-to-use contact form.
