Civilian Police Review Board (CPRB)

The Urbana Civilian Police Review Board (CPRB) is a city board, established by Mayor Prussing and the Urbana City Council in 2011 to provide a fair and independent process for the review of citizen complaints concerning sworn police officers. The Board is not a part of the police department.

Charged with offering a citizen’s perspective to the review of complaints and to provide a systematic means to promote and maintain positive police-community relations, the Board reviews complaints in a fair, thorough and timely manner and reports board findings to the Mayor and Chief of Police.

  • Board Membership. The Board is comprised of seven (7) members appointed by the mayor with the approval of the city council. Members are chosen from diverse segments of the community. Members serve without compensation for a term of three (3) years. Terms of office are staggered.
  • Meeting Schedule. The Board holds meetings at least quarterly, typically on a Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Urbana City Council Chambers. Special meetings, including Appeals Hearings, may be held as deemed necessary. Please see below for the schedule of all upcoming planned meetings. Board meetings are open to the public in accordance with the Illinois Open Meetings Act and public participation is welcome.
