On June 22, 2020, the City of Urbana affirmed by Resolution No. 2020-06-031R the “Ten Shared Principles” developed by the NAACP and Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. The adoption agreement between the City of Urbana Police Department and the NAACP of Champaign County was signed September 17, 2020.
As a next step toward building greater trust in the community, the Urbana Police Department (UPD) will revise its Use of Force Policy to incorporate the “Ten Shared Principles”. The UPD is seeking community input on the policy during three public Listening Sessions on November 12 and 13, 2020.
