Ed. Note: I was a little shocked to see this headline about police performing surgery on deaf people and baffled as to how they did it online, but upon reading the article, “surgery” is what we New World people call an online chat. Ha, those silly Brits.

From Derbyshire [England] Times, August 17, 2012
Derbyshire Constabulary is hosting an online surgery aimed at people who are deaf or hard of hearing or those who work with hearing impaired people.
It is hoped that the online question and answer session will attract people who want to discuss issues or concerns the police may be able to help with. People can also find out more about the support Derbyshire Constabulary offers to the deaf and hard of hearing community.
The surgery will be hosted by force outreach officer Jane Birkin and a specialist panel.
It will be held from 4pm on Wednesday, August 22. To take part, visit www.derbyshire.police.uk/virtualsurgeries
