News & Events

Spring Business Academy: We're now accepting applications for our next business academy, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 18 and March 25 (attendance at both sessions required). There is no charge for this class, which is designed to help business owners and employees learn crime prevention techniques and how to partner with the police department for a safe and successful business. For more information, visit our website

The latest edition of Public Safety News & Tips is available. This is a nice, information-packed two-page newsletter to share with your neighborhood watch group. This month's edition contains home fire safety tips and how to protect yourself against identity theft.

Roseville Fire Department Monthly Open Houses: The Roseville Fire Department is hosting open houses on the first Saturday of every month at one of our neighborhood fire stations. You can tour the station and meet your neighborhood firefighters, get your blood pressure checked, and learn something new about personal and home safety. The next one will be from 10 a.m. to noon March 1 at Station 6, 1430 East Roseville Parkway, with information about smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers and medic alert bracelets.

Mark your calendar: The next county-wide medication take-back day will be on Saturday, April 26, when you can safely dispose of expired or unneeded prescription, over the counter and veterinary medication. This is a good way to get potentially dangerous drugs out of your home without polluting our water supply. More details will follow as we get closer to the event.

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.

How Can I Find My Neighborhood News?

These neighborhood updates are organized geographically by police beat. We’ve divided Roseville into six geographic beat areas, and there are smaller neighborhood areas within each beat. If you'd like to know which beat and neighborhood area you live in, visit our website to view maps.
