Hello I am trying to become a cop. I do not hear out of one ear. Is this going to be an issue? My other ear is fine and my vision is perfect.


 


Thanks

Yes it will be a major problem. But call and ask your local department we cannot answer that 100% correct.



You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....

My suggestion is learn to read lips and stand with your good ear facing the person. You should be fine.

Actually, I know somebody from a law enforcement family who was disqualified for this reason by a department here in San Diego. 


There is a threshold.  And there were particular tests he had to pass and could not.  It was a big disappointment, but he chose another career path. 


Maybe you can research and find leads via hearing impaired support groups in your area.  You might find somebody who went through the process and succeeded.
