No they are deaf! And I have never heard of deaf Police Officers since the job requires you to be able to hear and speak and see and walk and run and many other things. But I suppose if they were deaf you could write on a piece of paper and have them read it or try to learn basic sign language like the, "American Manual Alphabet for the Deaf".

In the United States, "Deaf" with a capital "D" refers to those that use American Sign Language as their primary language. Not all deaf people are Deaf. To be deaf is to be unable to hear. It's normally defined as being profoundly hard of hearing. But to be Deaf is to be use sign language as your primary means of communication.

Quoted from the Related Link: "About 2 to 4 of every 1,000 people in the United States are "functionally deaf," though more than half became deaf relatively late in life; fewer than 1 out of every 1,000 people in the United States became deaf before 18 years of age. However, if people with a severe hearing impairment are included with those who are deaf, then the number is 4 to 10 times higher. That is, anywhere from 9 to 22 out of every 1,000 people have a severe hearing impairment or are deaf. Again, at least half of these people reported their hearing loss after 64 years of age. Finally, if everyone who has any kind of "trouble" with their hearing is included then anywhere from 37 to 140 out of every 1,000 people in the United States have some kind of hearing loss, with a large share being at least 65 years old."
