Bobby Harris brought many smiles and respects and appreciations to the Frederick Police Department with his glowing personality from helping out with the police training exercises how to deal with uncooperative deaf subject to the modification of visual aids fold-out pocket book for police officer to have an excellent communication with deaf individual. Harris also engaged in role-playing as a potential deaf troublemaker for police officer to deal with any deaf troublemaker. Harris demonstrated the handcuffing of deaf suspect/troublemaker behind their back to hamper (block/limit) necessary communication. Harris hopefully complete the development of his visual charts for productive communication between deaf individual(s) and police officer(s) before hitching to the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) this fall to study criminal justice and computer graphics.
Will Bobby Harris be our future consultant for the law enforcement agencies how to deal effectively with deaf individuals, instead of trampling on our civil liberties and police misconducts/ brutality? Hope so! Wish Bobby Harris all the good lucks with his studies and university life!
