Connecticut U Visa Certification Statute (2010) [pdf]

Connecticut Code Section 46b-38b(e)(5) requires that every police department in the state designate at least one official responsible for U visa certification who assist immigrant victims with U visa certification. The statute further requires that the Police Officer Standards and Training Council issue detailed U visa certification protocols that are to be adopted by each law enforcement agency in the state.
