Chief’s Message

2013 Dodge ChargerOn behalf of the Urbana Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our official website page. I am proud to live in Urbana and equally proud to work alongside the dedicated officers of our department.

“I am humbled to serve as the Chief of Police for this remarkable city and committed to serve my fellow residents to the best of my ability.”

This devotion, both in services we provide and the belief that people are our most valuable resource, has been the basis for our organization’s successes. As we strive to fortify the foundation in policing and continue to develop relationships with the community, other City departments, and outside agencies, we will continually strive to enhance the safety, security, and our alliances in the years to come.

The officers of the Urbana Police Department stand ready to protect the community at any hour of the day or night.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the citizens of our community and city council for their continued support. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact any member of our department for more information.
