What is it?
The revised 12 year old card will serve as a communication tool to provide useful information for both law enforcement and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
How will it work?
The visor cards and the wallet cards are a communication tool for interactions between citizens of Delaware and members of law enforcement. The visor card is available to any resident of the state who completes an application form. Cards are provided free of charge. It is designed to be stored in the visor of the vehicle for ready access in the event of an interaction with law enforcement while driving.
To Facilitate this goal of communication, each patrolling member of law enforcement will receive a visor communication card and departments can request training from the Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The wallet card was designed to meet the communication needs of those residents who do not drive, but rather walk, use motorcycles, use bicycles or travel.
How will cards be issued?
Residents who are deaf or hard of hearing can self-certify and apply for cards through the Delaware Office for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to keep in their vehicles and carry in their wallets. Cards will also be issued to every law enforcement officer in Delaware.
