Panel to look into creation of review board

URBANA – A 10-member task force has been appointed to look into whether the city of Urbana should create a citizens police review board that would investigate citizen complaints about improper police conduct.

The Urbana City Council unanimously voted Tuesday to approve Mayor Laurel Prussing's recommendation to create the task force. The panel has been given a January deadline to report back with a recommendation and possible alternatives for how such a body would work.
