Protect your mail!

Community mailbox with back door pried open

We've seen an increase in mailbox break-ins recently. Let's send would-be mail thieves away empty-handed, by not leaving mail in the boxes overnight or extended periods of time.

It's tax season, and tax forms with sensitive financial information are being mailed. Thieves look for such documents to steal your identity and commit fraud. Make it a habit to empty your mailbox every day, as soon as possible after delivery. Never let mail, whether incoming or outgoing, sit in the mailbox overnight. If you're going out of town, stop your service and have the post office hold your mail until you return.

When you're mailing checks, financial information or tax returns, we recommend handing your mail to the carrier or taking it to the post office for mailing.

Call police immediately if you see someone tampering with or prying a mailbox. Call 911 to report a crime in progress, or (916)774-5000 ext. 1 to report something after the fact.

All-City Neighborhood Watch Meeting

Neighborhood barbecue with police and neighbors

All Neighborhood Watch block captains and those interested in starting or revitalizing a Neighborhood Watch group are invited to an informational meeting on Tuesday, January 30 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Roseville Police Department's Mark White Community Room. You'll meet Roseville Police Chief Jim Maccoun, get an overview of crime trends in Roseville in 2017, and learn what to watch for in 2018. Active neighborhood watch block captains will have a chance to share what's going on in their neighborhood watch groups, and new people will find how to start a group.  RSVPs are appreciated but not required--call Police Community Services, (916)774-5050, or email PDCommunityServices@roseville.ca.us.

Refunds to some scam victims--deadline to file approaching.

If you lost money via a scam involving a Western Union wire transfer, you may be eligible for a refund. The deadline to file a claim is February 12, 2018. You must have lost the money to a scam via a Western Union wire transfer between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017.

Some types of scams that were facilitated by Western Union wire transfers:

--Online purchase scams--you paid via Western Union and never got the items you purchased.
--Lottery or prize scams, where the scammer had you wire money to them via Western Union for "taxes" or "fees" before you got your winnings, which you never received.
--"Grandparent" scams, where someone called you pretending to be a relative in trouble, and tricked you into wiring them money via Western Union.
--Online dating scams, where someone struck up an online "romance" and tricked you into wiring them money via Western Union.

For more information on this settlement reached between the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and Western Union, and how to file a claim, visit the FTC's website.

Save the Date - Fire Station Open House on February 3rd

Open House

Join us on Saturday, February 3, from 9:00 am - 11:00 am, as we open the doors to Roseville Fire Station 4 (1900 Eureka Road) for a Fire Station Open House! Families are invited to come and tour the fire station, ask the firefighters questions, and see firefighting equipment. This is a fun family event!

Make and practice a fire escape plan.

Fire Escape Plan


Your ability to get out depends on advanced warning from smoke alarms and advanced planning. Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as one or two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. To learn how to create your family's fire escape plan, visit the National Fire Protection Association's website but clicking here.
