On a recent Friday night, we had what we're still calling Super Busy Night (among other names). We had a 7-hour standoff with an upset man on a roof, a Mission-Impossible-style burglary of a motorcycle dealership and subsequent pursuit into south Sacramento, and many other more routine Friday night-type calls. In a fourteen-hour period, six dispatchers, divided between two shifts, handled 440 phone calls, 215 police events and 18 fire-EMS events, and all the radio traffic and requests from the field that went with them. They were the heroes behind the scenes who kept everyone calm, informed, coordinated and organized. Thanks to the night team--Tara, Dena, Becki, Shannon, Troy and Tara-Marie!
Congratulations to the inaugural class of Tech Teens! Chris Hardy from the City of Roseville's IT-Public Safety group partnered with the Roseville Police Activities League and led ten technology students from Roseville High School through a six-session after-school course on public safety technology applications, project management and leadership.
At its March 18 meeting, the Roseville City Council approved the conversion of the Roseville City Jail to an arrestee processing center when phase 2 of the South Placer County jail at the Santucci Justice Facility opens.
The South Placer County jail is just four miles from the city's facility, and is expected to open for bookings within the next year.
Three pedestrians have been killed while crossing the street in the city since the beginning of this year. Even when walking on sidewalks along well illuminated roads or crossing the street using a crosswalk, pedestrians need to take extreme care when crossing the road especially those with heavy traffic and multiple lanes.
