A police chief gave this advice on how to
communicate with the deaf. Use notes if
the deaf person can read and write and if
no interpreter is available. For the deaf
that don’t sign and depend on lipreading,
make sure the room is well lighted and the
officer is about 2-3 feet away face to face.
If the deaf person turns his head away,
it is OK to tap them on shoulder to get
their attention. Who gave that advice?
