Bias Crimes and U-visa

The Phoenix Police Bias Crimes / U-visa Detail investigates any bias-related crimes incident which occurs. A bias crime is any crime that occurs, in whole or in part, as a result of a prejudice or bias toward an individual or group based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

In regards to U-visa certifications, investigators respond to certification requests from citizens seeking U-visas by researching information in Departmental reports, prepare the applicable U-visa I-918 Supplement B certification forms, and draft return correspondence to these citizens. 

The effectiveness of the Bias Crimes/U-visa Detail is dependent upon the trust and relationships we build with the communities we serve. Presentations can be conducted on either topic. 

Please contact Sergeant Dustin Perkins with any questions or requests for presentations at (602) 262-7677.
