When petitioning for U visa from abroad, is form 918 supplement B a requirement?

Asked 9 months ago - Van Nuys, CA

If the person is trying to petition to Vermont center for U non-immigrant status, does that individual have to have i-918 B filled? Meaning, the Law enforcement agency certification is probably not an option,as in order to file a complaint to the Police or DA, one must be present in the US, but here the applicant is abroad, albeit her reasons (the crime she fell a victim of is very serious) How to deal with this situation? Thanks
