CHP Officer Uses Sign Language To Help Woman Apply For ID After Report Of Disturbance At South L.A. DMV.

A California Highway Patrol officer facilitated a hearing-impaired woman to apply for an ID at the Department of Motor Vehicles using sign language. The officer is being recognized for going the extra mile to assist a woman with a hearing impairment.

CHP was primarily called out to a report of a disruption at the Department of Motor Vehicles office at S. Hope Street. Officer Rodriguez answered to find a visibly distressed woman. He swiftly realized that the woman was disappointed because she was trying to connect using American Sign Language which no one at the office actually understood.

Officer Rodriguez knew the sign language and used it to help the anonymous woman apply for an identification card. The officer even funded it out of his pocket when he learned she didn’t have sufficient money to cover the cost herself.

CHP’s Central Los Angeles Division posted a video of Rodriguez facilitating the woman to the agency’s Facebook page where it had been viewed more than 47,000 times. 

Several users applauded Rodriguez in the comments below the video. One user wrote that the officer be worthy of the encouraging gratitude whereas another user said that every person deserves to be treated with respect.
