Community Service Officers


In Roseville, the Community Service Officer (CSO) is a specialized, professional full-time career position. CSOs perform a wide variety of technical support duties in the Police Department. The primary assignment is Patrol; however there are two 3 to 5-year rotating specialty assignments: Traffic and Investigations.

Patrol CSOs handle many calls for service including crime reports, traffic collisions, missing persons reports abandoned vehicle complaints, and many other service requests that do not require a Police Officer to respond. This effectually frees up Patrol Officers for priority calls for service throughout the City.
Under the supervision of the Traffic Sergeant, Traffic CSOs respond to traffic collisions (injury and non-injury) in order to free Motor Officers to perform traffic enforcement duties; investigate hit and run collisions; and assist the Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) as needed.

Investigations CSOs work under the supervision of the Investigations Sergeant and are assigned cases to investigate further, including Fraud, Identity Theft, and Missing Persons. One Investigations CSO is also responsible for processing all the permits issued by the Police Department.

Cadet Program
The Cadet Program follows a paid apprenticeship program framework to prepare college students for a law enforcement career. Under the supervision of a Patrol Sergeant, Cadets perform a variety of routine and progressively more difficult non-sworn duties. These include handling calls for service including crime reports, traffic collisions, missing persons reports, abandoned vehicle complaints, parking enforcement and traffic control, and assisting in SWAT training role plays. As Cadets, students must be enrolled in a local college or university, work part time and must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. Cadets may also have opportunities to work in other divisions, including Dispatch, Records, and Investigations.
