UPD is out ensuring a safe Halloween for all! (Can you guess who is dressed like a Chipotle burrito?) 😆🌯

APPREHENDED...Puppy Longdroppings was located in the 800 block of North Broadway. A passerby called the non emergency number saying an unpredictable red head was wandering the streets. According to Officer Anderson, Longdroppings was searching for her horse and monkey. Officer Anderson wasn't falling for this ridiculous story, so she impounded Londroppings. During the ride of shame, Longdroppings tried to bribe Officer Anderson with gold coins. What a sheisty little dog! If this bundle of attitude belongs to you, please contact Officer Anderson at 217-649-1333. Hopefully we won't get calls for a horse or monkey running at large😂

Met some great young men and women in east Urbana this evening! They all said they wanted to be a police officer when they grow up! 🚔 🚲

This is why we enforce stop sign violations. Luckily no one was seriously injured.

If anyone has information, please call Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS.

Well said kitty, well said.

Two heroes were murdered this past week in the line of duty. North Carolina State Trooper Kevin Conner was gunned down while conducting a traffic stop and Gwinnett County Police Officer Antwan Toney was gunned down while investigating a suspicious vehicle near a middle school. Both officers knew the dangers they could face before they put their uniforms on, yet they still came to work to serve their communities. We send our condolences to their families and agencies.

On Friday, The Urbana Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #70 completed their annual Cops Helping Kids fundraiser benefiting the residents of Swann Special Care Center. Sgt. Mikalik presented administrator John Lawrence and athlete Tiffany Mollet with the check for $9,044.

Good Saturday morning! As we all are moving about for the weekend (probably to buy our Mega Millions ticket-now sitting at $1.6 billion), please remember this. It’s in the best interest of everyone...oh, and required by law! 😬 🚘🛵🚲🚗🚕🚓🚑🚒🚐 What are some other words used for “blinker”? 🤔

UPDATE - Two of the three lanes are open at this time. Illinois State Police are on the scene of an accident involving a hog truck on I-74 west at exit 183. Traffic is being diverted to Cunningham Avenue. Please avoid the area if possible.

Does anyone recognize me? I am wanted for questioning in regards to a retail theft in Urbana. If you know who I am, please call Officer Franquemont at 217-384-2320 or Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS.

Just a friendly reminder. Have a great Wednesday!


Meet Buffalo Bill. This crazy man was seen in the streets of Urbana chasing moths and barking at women he didn't know. He seemed a bit sketchy and was eventually caught with yummy meat in a trap. After being trapped he mumbled something about lotion in a basket and Officer Anderson took him to animal control for him to be evaluated. Hopefully his owner can explain his bizarre behavior and take him home for snuggles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Incident Location: 1100 block North Goodwin, Urbana Date/Time of Press Release: October 8, 2018 3:00 p.m. Date/Time of Incident: October 7, 2018 10:32 p.m. MULTIPLE SHOTS FIRED INTO OCCUPIED HOUSE. On October 7, 2018 at approximately 10:32 p.m., Urbana Police responded to a report of a shooting in the 1100 block of North Goodwin. The occupants of a house reported that their house had been damaged after hearing significant gunfire in the immediate area. Upon arrival, officers located more than 40 shell casings of different calibers on the street in the 1200 block of Eads. Officers learned that the damaged house was occupied by at least 6 people at the time of the shooting, ranging in age from 1 year of age to 71 years of age. Nobody in the house was struck or injured by the gunfire. Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that multiple sedans pulled up to the house on Eads while facing eastbound. Multiple individuals then fired firearms at the house before fleeing the scene in vehicles which were last seen northbound on Goodwin Avenue. At this time, Investigators believe that this shooting may be related to an earlier shooting in the 1600 block of Sheffield Road in Champaign on October 7, 2018 at approximately 7:57 p.m. Both police departments are working together to confirm the motive and involved individuals from both incidents. The Champaign Police Department and Urbana Police Department request the public to come forward with any information related to these recent shootings or any other violent crimes over the last several years. The investigation on the incident is ongoing. Anyone with further information is encouraged to call the Urbana Police Department at 217-384-2320. Callers may remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS, submit a tip on the Champaign County Crime Stoppers website (champaigncountycrimestoppers.com), or submit a tip on the free P3 Tips app which if available in iTunes and Google Play app stores. As with all cases, the fact that a person has been charged with a crime does not necessarily indicate guilt and all persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Just a heads up for tomorrow.

UPD is working with researchers at the University of Illinois to help the police department gauge police-community relations and to develop strategies that would best suit neighborhoods in Urbana. 1500 households were recently sent letters asking individuals to complete a confidential telephone survey, and canvassers from UI will be knocking on doors in the coming weeks to encourage participation. If you were one of the 1500 households chosen, participation will get you a $10 Walmart giftcard! http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2018-08-20/urbana-begins-study-public-opinion-community-policing.html

We don't have many singers so instead of a lip sync video we thought we would show you around our "office". We do not own the rights to this music.

For those that sacrificed on September 11, 2001 and those that did days and years later. You will never be forgotten and your efforts will forever be remembered.

We all come from different backgrounds and have different skills. Ofc. Meneely and Ofc. Fink helped show a UIUC student some skills on a popular mode of transportation: the skateboard! It almost looks like Ofc. Meneely is also “flossing” on the skateboard. 😆🚓

This lovely lady was dumped in a corn field off of Florida Ave around 11:30 am today. We've named her Mazey. 🌽🌽🌽 Mazey appears to be a Pit Bull mix, tan and white, approximately 1 year of age, wearing a blue collar that was entirely too small. The vehicle was described as a "beat up" white minivan. Her owner is wanted for questioning regarding the incident. If she looks familiar and you know her owner, please contact Officer Anderson at 217-649-1333 or Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS.
