April 17, 2019, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ New Braunfels Police Department / Training Room
The New Braunfels Police Department is teaming up with the Alamo Area Council of Governments to offer quality training in the New Braunfels area. This training is intended for Law Enforcement, Animal Control Officers, Fire/EMS Personnel, and other Public Safety Professionals who regularly have contact with the general public. Considering that nearly 10% of the US population has some sort of hearing loss, it is reasonable to assume that some of those contacts would be with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. According to the American 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. This training is designed to help public safety personnel with information and techniques to understand when interacting with anyone who may be hearing impaired.
This training is mandated by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) and students will receive credit upon successful completion.
