Public Safety Forum
Date:  5/12/2016 at Sun City’s Timber Creek Lodge
 
The Roseville Police Department and Crime Stoppers hosted the Public Safety Forum at the Timber Creek Lodge in Sun City to help bring awareness of current crime issues in the city and Placer County, and provide crime prevention tips.
 
Police Chief Daniel Hahn said the police department receives about 117 ‘911’ calls per day.  Although this is about a 4% increase in calls, overall crime is still lower than surrounding cities.  Half of the people arrested in Roseville are not from Roseville.  He reported some crime statistics:  robberies included an increase with escalated store thefts; an 8% increase in burglaries (42% from open/unlocked garages); larceny (including 46% in thefts from unlocked/open cars.  He indicated there was a strong correlation between auto related thefts and drug usage, a result from Prop 47 and AB 109 legislation.  He also said a recent study shows Prop 47 is related to the rise in violent crime.   He advised they are trying to help keep neighborhoods strong, work with apartment managers, and use media sources to keep residents alerted.
 
Placer County District Attorney Scott Owens said they have 43 attorneys with offices in Roseville and Auburn, plus a one-and-a-half-person staff in South Lake Tahoe.  They cover 75,000 court appearances a year, and receive about 11-13 thousand crimes a year for prosecution.  They have a dedicated team to cover victim advocates - including elder abuse, scams, and restitution issues.  He stated the results of Prop 47 and AB 109 have resulted in the early release of 50,000 inmates, and reduced the punishment of 500 felonies to no longer require state prison commitments.  It also reduced what is considered a ‘serious’ felony - elder abuse is no longer considered a serious felony, and crimes under $1 Million are not considered a serious offense.  Criminals are no longer opting for drug court treatment programs, but instead choosing jail time where they will be released earlier, so they’re not getting help for their addictions. 
 
Placer County does not yet have its own Crime Lab, but they are trying to get one.  Currently, evidence must be ‘sent out’ through their contract with the Department of Justice, causing delays of results of 9-12 months (thus a high number of court continuances needed). 
   
Mr. Owens said he is “dead set” against the marijuana initiative now pending in Placer County.
 
Rob Baquera, PIO for the Roseville Police Department, introduced Sgt. Jeff Kool (Patrol Supervisor) and Sgt. Kelly Newton (Police Investigations) and they answered questions from the public on the crime processing team in the Roseville Police Department.  Sgt. Kool indicated the patrol officers make the initial determination of crimes.  Most residential burglaries enter through side entries and open windows; the first place criminals look is the master bedrooms searching for jewelry and guns.  Sgt. Newton said investigators then will continue with crimes against persons and property thefts using CSI teams and other measures to follow-up to identify the criminals. 
 
They gave overall crime prevention tips:  don’t use free WI-FI, never give out personal information over the phone; don’t leave garage doors cracked (zip tie emergency releases on garage doors).  Keep cars in garages whenever possible - most cars are stolen for their expensive parts (air bags, navigation systems, audio systems, etc.); recommend using The Club as a deterrent.  Report suspicious activity, make sure contractors have business licenses; security cameras are good and getting cheaper.  The Ring (doorbell camera) can send alerts to your cell phone, consider kick plates for doors. 
 
To a question about jail facilities, they responded that the local jail is closed, but hopes to open the County Jail facility here full service in the next year.  Meanwhile they take arrestees to Auburn.
 
Jaime Garrett, PIO for the Roseville Fire Department, stated they have 8 fire stations, usually 33 Fire Fighters on duty at any time, and handle 15,000 calls per year.  Their average response time is now 8 minutes.  All their Fire Fighters are Paramedics.  She recommended homes should have a disaster emergency kit prepared with enough supplies per person to last 3 days, including medications, eye care, and batteries.  Stay connected - the city has a “reverse 911” system used only for emergencies, but you must voluntarily sign up for it.  Ms. Garrett said the former child car seat installation program is expected to start up the middle of June after new staff certifications.  If you have questions, call the 774-6444 non-emergency dispatch number.
