Report a Crime
Effective January 1, 2019, the Urbana Police Department changed 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.
If you have questions about the web form, please contact Police Support Services at 217-384-2320.
Comments about Police interactions may be submitted through the Contact Us web form.
The mission of the Urbana Police Department is to enhance the quality of life in the City of Urbana by working cooperatively with the community and within the framework of the Constitution to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce the fear of crime, and provide a safe environment for all.
The Urbana Police Department will continually strive for excellence in the performance of its duties through education, training, and collaboration with its citizens.
Note: The police front desk email address is not monitored 24 hours/7 days, and should not be used for making a police report. For emergencies, always call 911.
