This morning, on Monday November 20, 2017, the Santa Cruz Police Department is announcing changes in its policy regarding the grant of U-Visa requests.
U-Visas are available to undocumented victims of crime who suffer as a result of being victimized and cooperate with police in the investigation or prosecution of the crime. In the past, many police departments have struggled from lack of internal policies that were consistent with the law and fair to victims. Santa Cruz PD is one department committed to fixing the mistakes of the past.
