Police & Other Safety News & Events
Woodcreek High School's Site Council presents Building a Network of Support: From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 17, teens, parents and concerned community members are invited to a multi-layered event to discuss how teens and parents can address the ongoing challenges with substance abuse. The session will begin with a presentation from Jon Daily from Recovery Happens on recognizing the signs of addiction. After that, there will be a choice of two sessions: a parent panel about how to talk to your teen, with personal experiences about why every parent should; or a student panel about how to talk to your parent, with a reality check from student stories. This free event will include a community resource fair and refreshments.

Mark your calendar: 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.

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.
