Deaf Community Working Together With Police

"'I think it's a matter of getting accurate resources and law enforcement improving their understanding,' Helms explained. In Middle Tennessee, this conversation has been ongoing for years in many cities and solutions have been worked toward, such as having the deaf community use special license plates so officers can know who is driving the car, or when actually face to face with an officer, having special identification or pen and paper so communication can be made easier."

The shooting of an unarmed deaf man by a police officer in North Carolina has brought up an important conversation around the country, focusing on how the deaf community and police should interact with each other.
