Shop with a Cop: On Saturday, December 14, we partnered with all our Placer County law enforcement agencies and Placer County Probation, and took seventy deserving kids to Shop with a Cop. The kids were nominated and selected because they did something great, whether it was improving their grades and performance in school, doing acts of service or making other positive changes in their lives. Each kid was assigned to a police officer or deputy as their escort and shopping buddy. You might have seen the procession of law enforcement vehicles on Foothills Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard en route to Target. After their shopping spree, the team took them to lunch at Destiny Christian Church, where the CHP gave everyone a bicycle. Special thanks to Target, Chick-fil-A, Rotary Club of Roseville and California Tactical for their generous support of this event.
December's Public Safety News and Tips is out with tips for safe home decorating and shopping safety. Read it online or print copies for your neighborhood watch group.

It's always a good practice to track your shipments, know when packages are arriving, and make arrangements to pick them up from your porch immediately. If you're not going to be home, reschedule your delivery or arrange for your packages to be delivered to a neighbor.

Alarm Permit Renewals
Have you received a notice from the Roseville False Alarm Reduction Program to renew your burglar alarm or pay an excessive false alarm fee, asking you to send payments to P.O. Box 749879 in Los Angeles? This is a valid, legitimate message on behalf of the City of Roseville and the RPD.
The City of Roseville updated its alarm ordinance last year, requiring annual updates of alarm permits for a $5 fee. These updates help us ensure we have current emergency contact information in case there’s an alarm at your house or place of business. We've contracted with an outside company, Crywolf, to handle our alarm permits and false alarm billing.
For more information on our false alarm reduction program, visit our website at www.roseville.ca.us/police, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.
