N.Y. police train for dealing with deaf

By Jim Read, Staff Writer
The Post-Standard

DeWitt police are working with deaf advocacy groups to improve the training officers receive on interacting with people who cannot hear.

The initiative is the result of a Sept. 23 incident involving a DeWitt officer and a deaf motorist who tussled in a McDonald's parking lot on Thompson Road. An investigation showed there was a lack of communication. The officer later resigned over the incident.
