The update brings Roseville's current ordinance into alignment with state law, and changes the focus of the ordinance to regulating massage businesses, rather than individual massage therapists and practitioners.

What's been happening in your area? Here's the police digest for April 28-May 5, 2017.

We're noticing an increase in vehicle theft activity, especially "Honda Hunter Specials." These are 1990s to early 2000s sedans, usually Hondas, Toyotas and Saturns, that are easy for thieves to steal using a shaved key, screwdriver or other car thief tool.

You can protect your trusty older sedan with an inexpensive tool of your own--a Club or similar highly visible steering wheel lock. Thieves looking for a quick and easy ride will see your anti-theft device and give your car a pass. Also, please never leave car keys inside your vehicle.
