Did you know that...? Mexican police had to find innovative ways to bring the crimes down. They hired a group of 20 deaf police officers (nicknamed the "Angels of Silence") for their heightened visual abilities to monitor the streets with security cameras in the Mexican city of Oaxaca. They detect visual cues that seemed off, pay attention to the visual periphery, sometimes lipread, perceive suspicious body language. It improved responses to the scenes.
