In the near future, the Roseville Police Department plans to ask City Council to approve an update to the existing ordinance that regulates burglary, robbery and panic alarm systems. Since 1999, the City has required that both residential and commercial alarm holders obtain permits from the police department. The ordinance also allows the police department to fine alarm holders for police responses for false alarms. 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. Read on for more information about the proposed update.

Three pedestrians have been killed while crossing the street in the city since the beginning of this year. Even when walking on sidewalks along well illuminated roads or crossing the street using a crosswalk, pedestrians need to take extreme care when crossing the road especially those with heavy traffic and multiple lanes.
