Additionally, they’ll be introduced to the concepts of community-oriented policing and problem solving, learn about volunteer opportunities, and will meet representatives from every unit within the department.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. Warn your family and friends about tech support scams. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is warning consumers to be on the lookout for tech support scams. You might already know the signs of a tech support scam, but do your friends and family? Seniors are often targeted by scammers, so make sure to talk to family members that may be affected. Here’s what they need to know. Companies like Microsoft or Apple don’t call and ask for access to your computer. If you get a call like that, it’s a scam. Real companies also won’t ask for your account passwords. Only scammers do. Tech support scammers try to convince you they’re legitimate. They’ll pretend to know about a problem on your computer. They’ll ask you to open normal files that look alarming to make you think you need help. If you do need computer help, go directly to a person, business, or website you know you can trust. General online searches are risky because they might pull up another scam. A tech support scammer who has access to your computer can install malware. Update your computer’s security software, scan your computer, and delete anything it identifies as a problem. Restart your computer to be sure the changes take effect. Going forward, download security updates as soon as they are available. Most operating systems have a setting to download and install security updates automatically. Use it. And install updates for your other software, including apps. Scammers can be very persuasive. If you or someone you know have fallen victim to a scam make sure to report it to ftc.gov/complaint. Roseville Wildland Fire Preparedness With devastating fires burning in California communities, Roseville residents are asking what they should do to prepare, how our city is helping our neighbors affected by these fires, and how we plan and prepare for fire danger in Roseville.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. Back-to-School It’s August and that means the start of another school year. With increased traffic around schools, drivers need to take precautions when children are present. Here are a few tips to remembers. When children are present, school zones require you to obey the posted 25mph or slower speed limit, regardless of the day of week or time of day. For example, if it's a Friday night at 10 pm and you are in a school zone when kids are present (maybe a football game or dance just ended), you are still required to adjust your speed to obey the slower school zone speed limit. When a school bus stops with its red lights flashing and/or its stop sign is raised, you must stop from either direction until all kids are safely across the street and the bus lights stop flashing (unless the school bus is stopped on the other side of a multilane or divided highway). Near high school campuses, bear in mind that a higher amount of the motorists are newly licensed teenage drivers who may not have as much driving know-how. Be careful at crosswalks. Now that school is in session it’s time to double check those intersections. Just when you think the coast is clear, a student may appear from nowhere and dart across the street. Make sure to make a full stop at stop signs. This will give you ample time to make sure the crosswalk is clear before proceeding. “...kids can be unpredictable.” We all know that kids can be unpredictable. Be especially careful in the school zone. Make sure that driving has your full attention. Put down that cell phone. There’s nothing more important than the safety of children. Summer Crime Trends Open garage door thefts The warm days of summer are upon us and with it comes an increase in home burglaries that occur from open garage doors. Often times these type of thefts can be prevented with a few precautions taken by homeowners. Close your garage door. It is not uncommon for homeowners to leave their garage door open while they are working outside. This may be convenient, but it is an open invitation to a burglar. Don’t leave your garage door opener in your car. If someone breaks into your car and steals your remote, he/she has an easy way into your home. Check to make sure the garage door is closed before going to bed. Close the garage door all the way down. You may be tempted to crack the door, especially on a hot evening. However, a criminal can easily slip under a partially opened door. Bicycle thefts The peak months for bicycle thefts occur June through August. You can take a few precautions to reduce the chances of becoming a victim. Keep your garage door closed and side door locked. 21% of bicycle thefts occur from garage burglaries. Always bring your bike inside at night. It may be a hassle, but many bikes are stolen at night. 15% of bicycle thefts occur from residential backyards. Write down the serial number of your bicycle. If possible, also take a picture of your bicycle. Both will be helpful if you have to file a stolen bicycle report. Park your bike with other bikes when you lock it up. Use a good-quality lock, so your bike will not be targeted first. Lock up your bikes even inside your garage, and be sure they are locked to some fixed point like a pipe or rafter. Once thieves gain access to your garage your bicycle and other valuables can be taken.
