The U Visa was created as a crime fighting tool that removes the fear of deportation and encourages immigrant crime victims to report crime victimization to police and participate in criminal investigations and prosecutions. Provision of language access in law enforcement responses at crime scenes results in improved accuracy of law enforcement reports, better crime scene investigations and more successful prosecutions. This training will discuss how providing qualified interpreters at crime scenes and U visa certification play crucial roles in improving community, victim and law enforcement officer safety. Attendees will build their skills for effective use of the U visa and provision of language access when working with immigrant and Limited English Proficient victims and witnesses and to improve community policing in immigrant communities.

This training is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), and will review the use of innovative approaches that assist law enforcement and prosecutors in using the U visa and language access as vital crime fighting tools to hold perpetrators accountable for violent crimes.

This project is a collaboration between the National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project (NIWAP), whose work promotes the development, implementation, and use of laws, policies, and practices that benefit immigrant women and children; the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA), which has been providing law enforcement training and technical assistance for 75 years, in fulfillment of their mission to support and enhance the professionalism of those whose job it is to serve and protect; AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women, whose mission is to improve the quality of justice in sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and human trafficking cases by developing, evaluating, and refining prosecution practices that increase victim safety and offender accountability.

The training faculty includes the following:

  • Officer Michael LaRiviere, Salem Police Department, MA
  • Detective Shelli Sonnenberg, Boise Police Department, ID
  • Leslye Orloff, Director, National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project, American University Washington College of Law
  • Jane Anderson, Attorney Advisor, AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women
  • Cannon Han, Project Coordinator, Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

The faculty consists of experts on violence against immigrant victims of crime who train nationally on the U visa and language access as tools to assist law enforcement in the detection and investigation of crimes committed against immigrant victims in their communities, including crimes such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. All attendees will receive training materials on best practices for language access at crime scene investigations, a U visa tool kit, and other valuable screening tools and materials.
