*Connecticut: U Visa Certification Law and Implementing Law Enforcement Protocol (2010)

In 2010 (most recently updated in 2014) Connecticut enacted a state statute requiring that each law enforcement agency in the state designate at least on officer in each department to be responsible for U visa certification.

On June 22, 2010 The Connecticut Officer Standards and Training Council issued a detailed protocol setting out U and T visa certification policies and training requirements for law enforcement agencies in Connecticut. General Notice 10-01. “Adoption of a Uniform Connecticut Law Enforcement Protocol for Treating Victims of Family Violence Whose Immigration Status is Questionable.” This implements the provisions of Connecticut Code Section 46b-38b(e)(5).
