Roseville City Jail--Closed

The Roseville City Jail is now closed.   Several years ago, the police department began planning to close the City Jail once the Placer County Sheriff’s Department’s South Placer Jail opened.  With a county-operated facility opening within Roseville’s city limits, it didn’t make sense for Roseville to operate a separate jail.  All Roseville Police correctional staff have now either left the department for opportunities elsewhere, or are transitioning to other open positions within the police department.  With no correctional staff remaining to operate the jail, it is now closed.  The Roseville Police Department will continue to be housed in our existing building at 1051 Junction Boulevard--just the basement-level jail area is being closed, and will soon be converted to provide much-needed additional office space and storage.

All Roseville Police arrestees who require booking will be taken to the main County Jail in Auburn until such time as the intake and booking unit opens in the South Placer Jail facility.  (The Sheriff’s Office is opening the South Placer Jail in phases.  Currently it is being used to house longer-term inmates, but is not yet accepting newly arrested people for intake and booking.)

This is a historic milestone for the Roseville Police Department!   Due to our distance from the main county jail in Auburn, we’ve operated our own jail since the beginning of our history as a police department.  The 1909 Roseville City Marshall’s office was located in the middle of all the action in the rowdy railroad town, in the Barker Hotel; the “jail” was a small box-like structure located conveniently nearby.  During the Great Depression, a WPA-funded project added an annex onto the new City Hall at 316 Vernon Street to house the jail.   The Roseville Police Department and jail remained there until 1973, when a shared police, fire and municipal court facility opened at 401 Oak Street--the current home of Roseville Fire Station No. 1 and the City’s Information Technology Department.   In 1998, the Roseville City Jail opened in its final home, the ground floor of our current police facility at 1051 Junction Boulevard.

The Roseville City Jail has been a great asset to the Roseville Police Department and Roseville community for many years.  We appreciate and thank the many fine professional men and women who have staffed our jail over the years.
