The Roseville Police Department invests in youth!

  • Roseville Police Department youth service officers work in our high schools to keep campuses safe and to help build strong relationships with youth, now and for the future.
  • The Roseville Police Department also believes in addressing problems early on, before they become big problems. Roseville PD offers juvenile diversion classes for first-time offenders, counseling, mentoring and fun though the Roseville Police Activities League (RPAL),

Running Away and Truancy

Truancy is a very serious matter. The Roseville Police Department’s Juvenile Division has made it a priority. In the State of California, 78% of prison inmates had truancy as the first entry on their arrest records and 82% of prisoners today are school dropouts. RPD's school resource officers work closely with their assigned schools to quickly intervene with students who have unauthorized absences.

Running away is not a crime, but when young people run away, they are at risk of being victimized by those who prey on vulnerable youth. The Roseville Police Department recognizes the importance of assisting families who are experiencing out of control adolescent behavior. If you have concerns about your teenager's behavior, talk to your school resource officer, or call RPD's director of social services, Bridgette Dean, at 774-5017.
