How do I get my stored or impounded vehicle released?
1. If your vehicle has simply been stored (not impounded), you may go to the storage yard and get your vehicle. You must pay all applicable towing and storage fees.   If you don't know which towing company towed your vehicle, call the Roseville Police Department dispatch center at (916)774-5000 extension 1.  They'll need the vehicle's license plate number or the name of the registered owner, and/or the location from where the vehicle was towed.

2.  If your vehicle has been impounded, and is now eligible for release, you must obtain a vehicle release from the Roseville Police Department's Records Unit during regular business hours. There is a $98 fee for impounded vehicle releases. You must furnish proof of current registration and a valid driver's license. If you do not have a valid driver's license, bring a licensed driver with you. You can then go to the storage yard and get your vehicle. You must pay all applicable towing and storage fees.

How do I report an abandoned vehicle?
If the vehicle is abandoned within the city limits of Roseville, call the Roseville Police Department at 774-5000 extension 1. If the vehicle has been parked on the street or in a public parking lot for longer than 3 days, a police officer or community service officer will mark it for tow. Although this is popularly called the "72 hour tow ordinance", the actual process usually takes longer because of a backlog in service requests and the need to properly document the tow and notify the owner.

The process for removing an abandoned vehicle from private property is different, but still call the Roseville Police Department at 774-5000 extension 1 to start the process.
