We're very sorry, but you haven't won the sweepstakes, nor does that giant global software company care so much about you that they've reached out to you to fix your computer problems.

The Roseville Police Department has prepared an application for the 2016 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG). These grants are allocated by the federal government to eligible local agencies every year according to a formula based on the jurisdiction's population and crime rate. This year, Roseville is receiving $19,928 through this program, and the department intends to use it, as it has for the past several years, to support our crime prevention and public outreach efforts. The application is available on our website for public review and comment.
