DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) - A suburban Atlanta police department is now using a device to help officers better communicate with the deaf and hearing impaired.

Dunwoody police said in a release that the department is now equipped with the UbiDuo Face to Face Communicator.

The wireless, portable device is equipped with two keyboards and screens to allow users and officers to quickly communicate with each other

The device allows citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate with police without having to wait for an interpreter or rely on relatives and friends to translate.
