Event Description:

Mumbai police officers from nearby police stations were screened for hearing loss by Audiometry at SHADES Center of Excellence, Mumbai, in collaboration with Mumbai Police. At this camp we screened total 108 police officers of 45-60 years of age group.
It was observed that hearing of only 67 is normal and 41 of them had hearing loss, 40 of them were bilaterally affected.
This data will help the governing office on imposing the rule strictly on noise level, spreading awareness of noise pollution and turning our city into a much quitter place to live.
