DHS-PB-2021-013: Handcuffing Clients Who Are Deaf or hard of Hearing (October 25, 2021)
When a DHS Officer handcuffs a client, who is deaf or hard of hearing, the Officer may effectively deprive that client of the ability to communicate using sign language, hand gestures, or in writing. Because of this, DHS Officers must exercise special care when handcuffing clients who are deaf or hard of hearing.
