New Feature: Report a CrimeSubmitted by BridgetB on January 9, 2019 - 3:40pm
Effective January 1, 2019, the Urbana Police Department will change how it takes some crime reports on lower dollar value incidents. Crime reports on these incidents will now be accepted via a web based report form. This change is intended to make the reporting of incidents more convenient for the reporting person and make more efficient use of our on-duty officers.
The web-based report will now be self-served. This means that you will now be able to file a police report “on demand” without having to wait for a police officer to come and gather the information to complete the report. The police report has been designed to be simple to complete and provide us with the information needed.
