  • Conflicting answers-color vision

    I understand this is a common theme on this forum, but I keep getting conflicting answers regarding ILEA/IMPD.

    I have a degree in CJ and have worked as an Auxiliary Officer. While an intern and auxiliary officer, I have not once had an issue identifying colors on the road or in any other situation. To make a long story short, I was going to go through a cert academy in Michigan but during my MCOLES medical, I found out I am color impaired??? Failed the dot test and the D-15 test (barely).

    Anyways, I have been getting conflicted answers regarding how things work in Indiana. A few people told me that color vision was a departmental requirement and somebody quite emphatically told me it was a state thing. I called IMPD to try to get an answer and got put on hold and was on hold for 30 minutes before I hung up.

    Anybody know?

    Thanks in advance and stay safe out there!

        I am a sworn officer with IMPD. I fail the dot test for red, and have since I was a kid, and did so during the medical for hiring. They gave me a different test that I was able to pass. So, at least a certain level of color blindness is acceptable.

            Same thing for me, but I work for the state. As long as you're not completely colorblind you'll be fine.

              This is for all you parents that like to put your kids names on the back of your mini-vans.

              STOP IT! There are predators that will use that information against them!

                  Indiana is rather liberal on the vision testing, you should have no problems.
