News & Events

We hope you're thinking about ways to reduce water use in light of the continuing drought situation. Please visit the City's drought information page for the latest news, some practical ideas and FAQs.

 Need to clean out your files? The next Community Shredding and E-Waste day will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at Mahany Park, 1545 Pleasant Grove Boulevard. Drive up and hand over your disposables, and we'll take care of the rest. E-waste is recycled by SIMS Recycling Solutions, an international recycling company with a sorting and shredding facility here in Roseville. Bring your sensitive documents (old bank and credit card statements, old medical records and the like), and have up to three file boxes shredded for free. We urge you to safely shred your own personal and business files, and not just put them in the garbage can intact. We've encountered a lot of thieves lately who regularly "dumpster-dive," looking through trash for people's personal identifying information, which they then use for fraudulent purposes.

Got old meds? The next county-wide medication take-back day will be on Saturday, April 26, when you can safely dispose of expired or unneeded prescription, over the counter and veterinary medication. This is a good way to get potentially dangerous drugs out of your home without polluting our water supply. More details will follow as we get closer to the event.

Roseville Fire News & Events

Fire Station Open House: It's Roseville Fire Department Station 7's turn to host! The next open house will be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 5, at Station 7, 911 Highland Point Drive. Tour the station and meet the firefighters. The firefighters have some especially kid-friendly events planned: a vehicle extrication demonstration, where they'll cut up a car, and a splat zone (firefighters will drop things off the high ladder truck so you can watch them go splat.)

ACO Corner

Many of us have been out enjoying the beautiful spring weather with our dogs. Our animal control officers remind us that Roseville has four dog parks where well-mannered, licensed dogs can run and play off leash. However, dogs are not allowed in our other city parks, and they're also not allowed to run off-leash on our trails and open space areas. This is for the protection of the public, dogs and wildlife. Skunks, raccoons and rattlesnakes live in our open spaces and can injure or kill roaming dogs. Off-leash dogs also cause problems for other park users and leashed dogs. Please do yourself, your dogs and other open space users a favor, and keep your dog on-leash when enjoying our open spaces.

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.

How Can I Find My Neighborhood News?

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.
