U Visa Law Enforcement Certification Resource Guide

General Material
Training Tools

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides this guidance to federal, state, local, tribal and territorial law enforcement officers. This public guidance primarily concerns law enforcement certifications for U nonimmigrant status, also known as U visas. The U visa is an immigration benefit that can be sought by victims of certain crimes who are currently assisting or have previously assisted law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of a crime, or who are likely to be helpful in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. Included in this resource is information about U visa requirements, the certification process, best practices, frequently asked questions from law enforcement agencies, and contact information for DHS personnel on U visa related issues.
