Will my hearing loss effect my ability to join law enforcement?

Question by Rachel: Will my hearing loss effect my ability to join law enforcement?
I’m 19 and a Paralegal in the U.S. Army. I have a decent amount of hearing loss in my left ear and may need a hearing aid in the near future. Other than this hearing issue im in good shape. I may not re-enlist and am trying to keep my options open but do not want to make an unnecessary break in service if I can avoid it. Please only serious and experienced opinions. Thank You!

I can’t give you a specific response as minimum qualifications are determined by each department, so your answer could vary.

I would expect an effective hearing aid should be treated no different than glasses that correct vision. If the hearing aid does not effectively correct you hearing, it could be an issue.
