Urbana is one of the cities where we are using public records requests to uncover the number of untested rape kits in police storage as part of The Accountability Project.

Through our efforts, we have learned that Urbana submitted 92% of all rape kits received between 2001 and 2015 to the lab for testing. As of January 2017, the remaining 16 untested rape kits have been submitted to the lab for testing. To learn more about our process, click here
