Law Enforcement and the Disabled.
Poelvoorde, Rose; And Others
The training program examines the relationship between law enforcement personnel and persons with disabilities. The curriculum is organized into four sections dealing with specific concerns of people with hearing impairments, visual impairments, mental retardation, and mobility impairments. Background information is presented for each disability along with emphasis on practical applications through simulated incidents with victims, witnesses, and suspects who are disabled. The manual specifies narratives to be presented by an instructor; statements to be recorded by students are presented on an accompanying study guide. A bibliography and list of audiovisual references are appended. (CL)
