Police Beat 1
Northeast Roseville

Olympus Pointe, car break-in:  Between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. December 27, someone smashed the window of a car parked at the Miner's Ravine trailhead, and stole a backpack containing the victim's wallet, cell phone, iPad, credit cards and ID.
Tip:  Thieves love fitness center and trailhead parking lots.  They know people often leave their purses, wallets and other valuables in the car, and won't be back for at least an hour.  We suggest that when you go to run or work out, that you leave your valuables at home, and only take those essential items that you can take along with you--your driver's license, car keys and cell phone.

Olympus Pointe, garage burglary:  Between 8 p.m. December 29 and 12:30 a.m.December 30, someone got into an apartment garage in the 1400 block of Rocky Ridge by unknown means, and then went into the unlocked car parked inside, stealing sunglasses, registration paperwork, a dog grooming kit, and other small items.

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 www.roseville.ca.us/police, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.

These neighborhood updates are organized geographically by police beat. We’ve divided Roseville into six geographic beat areas, and there are smaller neighborhood areas within each beat. If you'd like to know which beat and neighborhood area you live in, visit our website to view maps.
