|At their September 2 meeting, Roseville's City Council will consider approval of an update to the existing ordinance that regulates burglary, robbery and panic alarm systems.

The purpose is to help residents and businesses have effective, well managed alarm systems, and to reduce the number of times police officers respond to false alarms.
