shall have power to relieve from active duty on patrol any member of the
police  force,  who, while in the actual performance of duty and without
fault or misconduct on his or her  part,  shall  have  become  disabled,
physically,  as a result of injuries or illness attributable thereto, so
as to be unfit to perform full police duty, such disability having  been
certified  to  by so many of the police surgeons as the commissioner may
require. Such member may be assigned to the performance  of  such  light
duties as he or she may be qualified to perform.  THE TERM "DISABLED" AS
USED IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT INCLUDE THOSE MEMBERS OF THE POLICE FORCE
WHO CAN FULLY PERFORM POLICE DUTIES WITH THE USE OF A HEARING ASSISTANCE
