To determine if they are eligible to receive funds under this policy, the member must apply to a three-person screening committee appointed by the UAPD President. The decisions of this Committee shall be final. Other restrictions apply– please contact the Sacramento office at 916-442-6977 for details and to submit an application to the screening committee.
