City of Urbana, Urbana Police Department, and BerryDunn Invite Community Involvement in CFS Evaluation Survey

Key elements of this comprehensive evaluation will include:
• Community Input: A crucial survey designed to collect vital information, shaping the future of public safety services in Urbana.
• External Engagement: Dialogue with service providers, advocacy groups, and stakeholders in the public safety ecosystem.
• Internal Assessment: In-depth discussions with police staff and City officials to refine the CFS model.
