Why Roseville Police Department?
The City of Roseville is nestled at the western edge of Placer County, along the Interstate 80 corridor, which is a short, scenic drive way from the Sierra Foothills and Lake Tahoe (approximately 90 miles away)--snowboarding, skiing, or simply to relax. We are roughly the same distance away from the San Francisco Bay area, yet another world-class destination to enjoy all the region has to offer. Roseville sits close to many of the of the area's largest lakes, including Folsom Lake, a destination for all sorts of water sports, like kayaking, boating, paddle boarding, as well as Lake Natomas, which is well known for its top-tier rowing facility and running / bicycling trails.
Relocating to Roseville might mean buying a home, and the costs are dramatically lower than areas nearby, like the Bay Area. Our median home price, according to Trulia.com, is below $400,000 ($366,000). Our community is incredibly safe, with many parks and recreational activities practically right outside your front door. For more of what the City of Roseville offers, please check out our Parks and Recreation website. We pride ourselves on a beautiful community where our families can thrive.

Placer County recently ranked 2nd among all California counties and 17th among the nation's healthiest counties, according to a University of Wisconsin study published in U.S. News and World Report. This is an excerpt from the Sacramento Bee:
One of the drivers of economic health is the physical and mental health of the community," said Dr. Robert Oldham, Placer County health officer. "Having an approach that looks at many different factors--getting more into the schools, environments that support physical activity, education--there's not one intervention that has an impact."
It's a blueprint that placed Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties among America's 50 Healthiest Counties for Kids 2014-2015, according to recently released rankings published in the U.S. News and World Report.
To further promote healthy lifestyles, we offer our officers a paid workout program--one hour, at the beginning of every shift. We believe in building a stronger, healthier community. Our mission is to reinforce a stronger bond with our community, which is why we have made community-oriented policing the centerpiece of our approach. Many of us live here, so when we work to solve a problem with members of our community, we are resolving them as a resident ourselves. We pride ourselves on that level of service, and we hear it often from visitors. This is the sort of employee we want to hire, an individual committed to providing superior levels of service to everyone. If you are that person, please connect with us.
