News & Events

Our latest Public Safety News and Tips newsletter is a quick read you can print out for your next neighborhood watch meeting.  The January edition contains information about new traffic laws, winter driving and indoor heating safety.   

Scammers targeting small businesses: Be aware of scam artists calling small businesses, pretending to be from Roseville Electric. They say that they're on their way to shut off the power due to nonpayment, but will accept immediate payment in the form of cash gift cards. Our utility department employees don't call customers to solicit payments (we do place routine"robo-calls" to remind customers about late payments).  Also, no legitimate utility company or business will demand payment in the form of money wire transactions or cash gift cards. If you get a call or visit from a live person claiming to be with our utility departments demanding immediate payment, don't fall for it--it's a scam. Hang up and call Roseville's utility billing representatives at (916)774-5300 to report the suspicious call. If someone contacts you in person claiming to be from a utility department, you hadn't requested service and they seem suspicious, don't let them in--call police.

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.
