News & Events

Happy New Year! If your New Year's Eve plans include drinking, now is the ideal time to designate a member of your group to be a sober driver, or plan another safe and sober ride home. If you're hosting a party, make sure you have non-alcoholic drinks to offer designated drivers, and make sure all your guests have safe rides home. Roseville Police, the CHP and other neighboring law enforcement agencies will have extra officers out, looking for drunk drivers and keeping our roadways safer. Plan ahead, and don't start the New Year in jail, the hospital or worse.

Due to the holidays, this is an abbreviated crime report--it doesn't include the usual round-up of vehicle break-ins and thefts from unlocked vehicles. Be assured they're still happening. Please, especially at this time of the year, don't leave your purse, wallet, shopping bags or other valuables in your unattended cars, and don't leave your garage remote in your car when you park outside at home. Always remove all your valuables and lock up.

Alarm Permit Renewals

Have you received a notice from the Roseville False Alarm Reduction Program to renew your burglar alarm or pay an excessive false alarm fee, asking you to send payments to P.O. Box 749879 in Los Angeles? This is a valid, legitimate message on behalf of the City of Roseville and the RPD.

The City of Roseville updated its alarm ordinance last year, requiring annual updates of alarm permits for a $5 fee. These updates help us ensure we have current emergency contact information in case there’s an alarm at your house or place of business. We've contracted with an outside company, Crywolf, to handle our alarm permits and false alarm billing.

For more information on our false alarm reduction program, visit our website at, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.
