July 26, 2017—Roseville City Manager Rob Jensen announced today the appointment of Jim Maccoun as the city’s next police chief. Maccoun, who has served as Roseville’s assistant police chief since 2014, will assume leadership of the Roseville Police Department in mid-August. He succeeds Daniel Hahn, who is leaving Roseville around that time to become the next chief of police for the City of Sacramento.
Recently Roseville Police officers began carrying naloxone, a life-saving drug for people suffering from an overdose of opioid drugs. The Roseville Police Department received the naloxone kits through a partnership with the Placer Nevada County Medical Society as part of a $50,000 grant from the California Health Care Foundation.
