I'm trying to find out what the hearing standards are for a Federal LEO to be retained or hired. Does anyone know where I can find this?? What is acceptable loss over time/age? What "reasonable accomodations" must the (federal) employer allow and is amplification [read: hearing aid] acceptable for minor loss(es) and what ranges? If it's for retention and hearing aids are acceptable, who pays? I'm sure this may be of interest to some of us "mature" LEO types since we can't escape this sort of thing and I'm sure that the standards vary from State or Local Agencies but nonetheless, I'd like to know. Any word would be appreciated.
